Hello World. I'm completely
Hello World.

I'm completely new to OpenFOAM and Linux as well. I will do some study research with OpenFOAM and I'm now getting into OpenFOAM by running the first tutorials.

But there is my first problem.
When I'm opening the icoFoam - cavity problem with FoamX I get this strange error message.
What is the problem and how can I solve it?

Caught FoamXIOError exception in FoamXCaseServer::main(int argc, char **argv) :
FoamXIOError "Cannot open included file \"/home/sega/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/apps/FoamX/dictionaries/con trolDict/controlDict.cfg\" while reading dictionary"

Do I get this right?
There is a problem with this file:
/home/sega/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/solvers/incompressible/icoFoam/ FoamX/icoFoam.cfg
starting at line 13 ending at line -1

In this file I can find the following entry at line 13:

include "$FOAMX_CONFIG/dictionaries/controlDict/controlDict.cfg";

As I have looked up, there is no such directory.
The directory is called / instead of /controlDict/ ...

After chaning this entry the case seems to work.

But what went wrong?

Well, some more solvers are connected to the wrong directory.

I have opended some more cfg-files.

Did I do something wrong with the installation?
