Hi friends,

I have been using ubuntu 1.7.1 from few months and have also installed tecplot360. I have issues now with tool Tecplot.
After running the solver, when I try to convert foam results to tecplot data using command foamToTecplot, I recieve error "foamToTecplot : command not found" ,

I really need to sort out this error, .........is this because I have to install git repository for 1.7.1.. ? (as I read in one forum..not sure)
if so please let me know how....

since I am new to OF n tecplot.... please help me

thanks in advance,

Pramod

hi
you need to import first the grid file i guess contained in your 0/ folder and then also import the rest of the files using multiple file option in tecplot.
