Hey. Sorry for all these threads i seem to be creating.

Right. So far I have successfully downloaded and compiled OF 1.6.x

The trouble comes when I try to edit the bashrc file.

I have editted it in the terminal using the command

Quote:
sudo nano .bashrc
and saved changes to it before exiting.

as the readme says I have added
Quote:
$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6.x/etc/bashrc
to the very end of the file so there is nothing after it.

This gives me the error when i start the terminal again of:
Quote:
bash: /home/xye/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6.x/etc/bashrc: Permission denied
I do not know what to do now.

You forgot the . (the dot space) before your command.
you can make it easier for yourself, by typing
source ...................................../bashrc instead.
Good Luck
