makeAxialMesh - installation issues
 
Hi,

i want to install MakeAxialMesh, but the result when calling the program with "makeAxialMesh" is always "command not found". I tried a lot and read forums without success. I am relatively new to Linux, so there may be a easy solution i do not know.

Here is my setup:
The given computer has OF2.01 installed at
ThinkPad-Edge:/opt/openfoam201$

I changed to the folder
ThinkPad-Edge:/opt/openfoam201/applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation/
and executed
sudo svn checkout https://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefo.../MakeAxialMesh

Then it was installed at:
ThinkPad-Edge:/opt/openfoam201/applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation/MakeAxialMesh$

Within this folder, there is another folder named "makeAxialMesh". :confused:

But i can't call the programm with "makeAxialMesh". Do i need to add something to the $HOME/.bashrc or the other bashrc located somewhere in the openfoam folder? What did I do wrong? Thanks a lot for helping!! :)

Have you compiled it? Then it should be in your PATH (FOAM_USER_APPBIN to be specific)

I executed the line given in the download section:
sudo svn checkout https://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefo.../MakeAxialMesh
That's all - is it right? Is ist "compiled"?

I found no Path FOAM_USER_APPBIN. Is it installed with OF or do i need to create it somewhere? Should i execute the above mentioned line in this directory? Thanks a lot!

No. You downloaded the sources. Compilation is done with the command wmake in the directory which has a subdirectory called Make. See the UserGuide section 3.2 for details on utility compilation

FOAM_USER_APPBIN is an environment variable and the contents of that directory can be accessed with

echo $FOAM_USER_APPBIN

(but that is non-OF-specific)
