Hello, there's some *piled* instructions, how to run WB on Ubuntu.

Let's assume, you've created /ansys_inc link to the place where ANSYS products had been installed.
1) change default script:
Code:
gedit /ansys_inc/v162/Framework/bin/Linux64/runwb2
change first line to
Code:
#!/bin/bash
2) install libraries
Code:
sudo apt-get install libx11-dev libxext-dev libmotif-dev libxp-dev libxt-dev libxtst-dev libsm-dev libice-dev libgcc-*-dev
3) run WB with configured variables.
For modern v162, it will be:
Code:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/ansys_inc/v162/Framework/bin/Linux64/Mesa
export FLUENT_ARCH="lnamd64"
/ansys_inc/v162/Framework/bin/Linux64/runwb2 -oglmesa
For old version of ansys WB (13,14) you should use
Code:
setarch x86_64 --uname-2.6 /ansys_inc/v162/Framework/bin/Linux64/runwb2 -oglmesa
Some other errors:
Code:
setup-mwuser: 149: rpm: not found
Code:
ServiceMain failed with 1702 (000006a6) The binding handle is invalid.
are covered here:

Hey everybody,

I tried to install fluent17 on ubuntu 14.04. First it seems to work, but after I open a mesh or a case file I get this error:


Error: eval: unbound variable
Error Object: unquote



I can load a dat file as well, but all the options (like viscous model) remain unavailable and I can't start the calculation.



Thanks for your help.


Jens

(btw. fluent161 works fine)

Thanks for the tip on this! I was looking for a fix for OpenSuse!

BTW, CentOs is working really well with ANSYS as long as you installed a lot of packets! And CentOs 7 is announced as a future supported platform!

Hi everyone,

I am trying to get ANSYS running on archlinux. These are the steps I have taken:

1. Installing v16.1. This took several attempts: lacking dependencies would cause errors to be entered in the install.err.tmp log, I installed all dependencies until the installation ran without any entries in this log. However, installation hangs at 99%.

2. Creating a dummy "rpm" script (from memory that was the name) that echos the version of glib.

3. Double checking that I have all dependencies mentioned by villager above and trying out his environment variables and runwb2 modification.

4. Installing v15.0. This installed fine first go.

This is the problem I am having:

Launching the workbench works fine using /ansys_inc/<version>/Framework/bin/runwb2 with and without the oglmesa argument. I can drag Fluent into the project schematic pane but when I try to launch the Design Modeler:
- with v16.1 it either opens but segfaults every time I click anything or doesn't open with an "Unable to start the geometry editor." error.
- with v15.0 it hangs for quite a while then gives me the same "Unable to start the geometry editor." error.

My machine is a lenovo T550 with integrated intel graphics (some kind of low voltage core i5).

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

You must have a missing library. Design Modeler relies mostly on MesaGl so try to install any related package to this one and devel ones also.
You should find log files under ~/.ansys/ that should state the error and the missing library.

Hey Jens,

What localization do you use? I use fluent 17 on Debian Jessie. For me using english localization instead of german fixed the problem. It seem to be an issue with the decimal seperator.

Steffi

Yes, there is a problem of localization with Fluent 17.0, but by the way it is not only on uncertified distros (the title of this post...

I had the same error as Jensi_t (post #242) on CentOS 6.7, which is the exact clone of Redhat 6.7, a supported distro (even if the Ansys support hardly answer the questions of CentOS users because they want to be able to involve the Redhat support).

The solution, known bu the support for redhat users, is to set the LANG environment variable to en8US or to C, i.e. :
export LANG=en_US (on sh,bash,...)
setenv LANG en_US (on csh,tcsh,...)
before running fluent or workbench.

I was using French (LANG=fr_FR-UTF8), it worked in v16.2 but not in v17.0

Thanks Huey,

I've been chipping away quite slowly at the problem between other work. I've also had an unsuccessful attempt at getting ansys going in CentOS through virtualbox but I'm going to focus on getting it to work in Arch. Here is my progress:

1. Fluent and CFD-Post both run well. Geometry and Mesh both give the error "A fatal error has occurred within AnsysWBU.exe and it must be closed...".
2. The only useful error log I found told me I had an out of date licence manager. I reinstalled the licence manager using the v161 ISO. No change.
3. I have installed every package listed in the official linux installation guide, every package related to mesa and the xf86-video-intel graphics driver for my graphics card.

Any ideas??

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

Package libxp-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libxp-dev' has no installation candidate
