How to launch fluent 6.3.26 on Ubuntu 11.04
Hi guys!
I've just installed fluent 6.3.26 on Ubuntu 11.04, but I cannot launch it.
The software should have been properly installed, but I cannot find the right command
to launch it.
Could you help me, please?
Thank you in advance.

If Fluent is properly installed on your machine, you should open a terminal and enter,

fluent 2d

I hope this helps you.

In ubuntu 64 bit you will also need some other packages to execute FLUENT 6.3.26.
