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!

Pei

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 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.

A.C.

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

Hi Ameya,

i am vishal working on openfoam in Chennai, for a aerospace project.ofcourse setting up foam cas eat using command line offers greate flexibility.
but some times it becomes confusing to set up some files at the backend due to unknown terminologies.

Are u comfertable with thease terminologies...

please let me know.

if in case u get foamX working for foam 1.5 version please let me know.

Thanks and Regards
Vishal
