mali28 is on a distinguished road
Can any one tell me the code to read a mesh from any other directory other than the tutorials. I want openFoam to read a mesh (Fluent '.msh' file). I will first need to convert it. I am having error in converting the mesh using fluentMeshToFoam
I have also tried

My mesh contains mostly hexahedral and tetrahedral cells. Size of the mesh is about 2.8 million cells.

The error is it can not find the file. But when I use directory command in UBUNTU terminal i can see the file.

I am using OpenFoam 2.0 and UBUNTU 11.04 64 bit.

Can any one help me sort this out please.

Thank you.
