Hello everybody,
system: Suse 10.0, x86_64, opteron.
installation: successfull
foamInstallationTest: no critical error, no warnings.

When I try to convert tutorial fluent mesh file (.../tutorials/icoFoam/elbow/), I've got this message:

Same error message get, when I try to convert simple mesh file from gambit and Tgrid. Mesh file does not contain any MRF, interface/internal BC, periodicy atc.

Thanks a lot for your response

hjasak will become famous soon enough
And where is the case directory that you are trying to make the mesh for? From the directory where you are trying to run, do:

ls l r/c/system/controlDict

and take it from there.

Thank you for fast response. Truth is, I didn't understand quite well to marking place <root> <case>. Well. I am just in tutorial directors tree:
.../tutorials/icoFoam>

Type to shell:
fluentMeshToFoam ./ elbow elbow.msh

And get this message:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : fluentMeshToFoam: file "elbow.msh" not found

From function fluentToFoam::main(int argc, char *argv[])
in file fluentMeshToFoam.L at line 894.

FOAM exiting

It is still looking like my understanding to <root> and <case> is not quite bright. Could you tell me, what should I type after fluentMeshToFoam?
<root> ./ ... place, when I am just now
<case> ... director, which content mesh file
and finally filename of mesh file. Is it correct?

After all, I break it.
I find correct syntax for converting mesh file.

fluentMeshToFoam . msh_dir msh_dir/mesh_file.msh
Eureka!

It is my first step with OpenFOAM, so I am deeply sorry for primitive questions.
Thanks for patience.

Hi David!

I have the same problems as you had, but I don't know what to write after fluentMeshToFoam. My new case is in simpleFoam (it is called Malla), and my .msh file is called MALLA.msh. Sorry, I'm quite new in it. Thanks in advanced
