Tutorial files
 
hi everyone,

I've just installed Openfoam 2.1.0 and Paraview and I would like do the tutorials. Unfortunately I cant find the files. There should appear an folder called Openfoam in my home directory but there is none. I'm quite sure the installation of openfoam was succesful. Do I have to install them seperately or how can I find them?

thanks

hihi,

if you installed everything according to the website the alias "run" should work!

open a terminal and type : run
it will take you to a folder with the tutorials folder in it.. then you just enter it and run the well known cavity tutorial..

if you prefer: cd $FOAM RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity

check this link: http://www.openfoam.org/docs/user/cavity.php#x5-40002.1
it's the walkthrough of the lid-driven-cavity

also type: which icoFoam
and you see where OF was installed!
