ParaFoam, blockMesh etc in vnc
 
hi guys

at the moment im working on my diploma thesis and useing openfoam. unfortunately i dont have my own linux workstation so i have to use TurboVNC. So the problem is when i tried to practice the cavity turorial i cant launch paraFoam, icoFoam, blockMesh and so on.
When i write the command "blockMesh: command not found" appears. Im really not well versed in handling linux so could anybody please help me.

Hi Simon

It seems to be no VNC related problem.
After login via VNC, check your PATH or environmental variables of your shell.
Does foamInstallationTest works?
