hi,

I want to run blockMesh over a blockMechDict file, but I get the following error message:

Code:
frighter@frighter-System-Product-Name-System-Product-Name:~$ '/home/frighter/j/constant/polyMesh/blockMeshDict' 
bash: /home/frighter/j/constant/polyMesh/blockMeshDict: no right
frighter@frighter-System-Product-Name-System-Product-Name:~$ blockMesh

    For debug level (= 2) > 1 this is considered fatal

I am not sure if this is a problem with OpenFoam or my user rights. Does someone have a tip?

That's a classic PEBCAK (Problem exists between chair and keyboard). According to your output you are running blockMesh in your $HOME while the case is in $HOME/j. Either go to the case directory and run blockMesh there or use the -case-option
