can u help me to sought out this problem .
For the deb package for Ubuntu, start reading here: http://www.openfoam.com/mantisbt/view.php?id=410#c1013
As for the source package, do not install OpenFOAM directly on "/opt" until you have enough experience. Simply follow the instructions provided in the page for the source package and install OpenFOAM on your user area at "$HOME/OpenFOAM".

It's already installed! See the line in bold:
OpenFOAM have updated the link now for Deb pack Ubuntu, now you can try :)
can you post your ~.bashrc (only the lines that are responsible for OpenFoam)
do the OpenFoam shortcuts work properly? Try
I guess that you did not configure your .bashrc.
