On the terminal I try to find the file $HOME/OpenFOAM, but it says the directory cannot be found. I try reinstalling the OpenFOAM software and the terminal says that it is already installed? How can I find the OpenFOAM file? Help Please!!

Hello,

can you post your ~/.bashrc (only the relevant part for OpenFOAM) here ? might be that there is s.th wrong for your installation.

thx

The last line of your ~/.bashrc file should be:

source /opt/openfoam201/etc/bashrc

Make sure that this is the last line (avoid a blank line before the command). Sometime ago, I tried to install the OPENFOAM and, believe me, a blank line was ruining everything.
