Hi,

I installed OF-1.5 on OpenSUSE 10.3/11.0 64 bit OS. When I typed FoamX, I got "bash: FoamX: command not found". Is FoamX still supported in OF-1.5? Or has the command changed?

Thanks!

Hi, Pei,

I think FoamX becomes obsolete in OF-1.5 (See Appendix A).
The instruction of running FoamX can be found in User guide's Section A.5.
I hope it helps.

Hi guys,

I want to update from 1.4 to 1.5 too but I need FoamX (command line is hard for me). Is it possible to make FoamX (in OpenFOAM-1.4) works with OpenFOAM-1.5?

Thanks and regards,
Y.J.

I think the FoamX installation
 
I think the FoamX installation and usage reference in the OpenFOAM v1.5 manual is for older versions of OpenFOAM. I have compiled both v1.4 and v1.5 and I know v1.5 does not incorporate the paths associated with FoamX.

So the big question is why is FoamX abandoned? Any work arounds or possibilities for a similar interface release?

Some insight would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes indeed it would be great to have FoamX running for 1.5 but I must say commmand line offers much more flexibility of operation than any GUI
