Hey. I've installed OF on my Mint7 machine.

I am having trouble with the 'getting started' part of the ReadMe.

I am trying to run

'cp -r $WM_PROJECT_DIR/tutorials $FOAM_RUN'

but it gives me

'cp: missing destination file operand after `/tutorials''

I have no idea what i am doing but i need to learn.

FOAM_RUN might not be initialized in your environment. Run the 'env' command to see all the defined variables.

It may also be that the FOAM_RUN directory does not exist, double check that ~/OpenFOAM/USERNAME-1.5-dev/run exists. The -1.5-dev postfix is specific to your openfoam version. You can see how all the variables get defined in the file OpenFOAM/etc/settings.sh
