vahid_paris is on a distinguished road

I have a problem during the openfoam installation.
I have CAElinux package containing linux ubuntu as well as openfoam.
Actually, I put the CAElinux pack in "opt" directory. I compilied the software with ./Allwmake commande, but after checking the installation with "foamInstallationtest" command, I saw the following error:

"OpenFoam environment not configured."

I used the following command to set the environment:

export FOAM_INST_DIR=/home/simuser
[ -f $foamDotFile ] && . $foamDotFile

I also added the following line in .bashrc file:

source /opt/openfoam201/etc/bashrc

but, still, I have the same problem. Any idea about this error?

So you are telling ".bashrc" that OpenFOAM is parked in your home folder... And then also tell it that you parked in opt as well?

What were exactly the steps you've taken to install OpenFOAM 2.0.1 at "/opt"?

As far as I can tell, you first installed OpenFOAM as root to place it at "/opt". If so, how exactly did you call OpenFOAM's "bashrc" file while in root mode?

Best regards,
