Hi there, I donīt understand your problem. Usually all tutorial cases contain an "allrun" file.
So, just open a new terminal (ctrl+alt+T), an point to (cd @youruser../tutorial/incompressible/porousSimpleFoam/Angled..
and type ./Allrun

Are you sure that you install openFoam properly??
Open a new terminal and type:
which simpleFoam

You have to get something like this

/opt/openfoam200/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/bin/simpleFoam

I suggest you to run the simplest cases available in the "run" directory. Like pitzdaily.. in incompressible/simpleFoam folder
