FLUENT runs fine on linux and normally faster. It was actually "make for linux" as you can see in the documentation the original GUI was made using mosix.

I already have problems when running in one of the unsupported distros like you and most of the problems come from the new "workbench" crap. If you are just running fluent go straight to the fluent executable and everything should work, or it should at least give you more meaningful errors. If i remember correctly you may have to install some extra libraries in ubuntu to make it run properly.

I have installed fluent 14 in linux ubuntu but it seems have some problem.
It gives me an error while starting:

/loadmanager.fl: not found
Error: Failed to start Fluent under loadmanager.

I worked it out already and is working fine with all cores.
It was just few .exe which needed special permission and the settings for parallel run.
I contatced Ansys guys to fix it and thy sent me a procedure to do tht.

Thanks again,
Sorry to dig up this post so many years after. If you still can read this, could you please tell me the procedure you dealt with this problem? I've come across exactly the same situation like you and not in the mood of switching the OS to Linux, thx
