Problem to run the OpenFoam in ubuntu
I have installed the OpenFoam 1.7.1 in the Linux-ubuntu 11.04 but when type the OpenFoam commands in terminal and press Enter, Message "command not found" appears.

For example go to directory

“cd tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity$”

and Enter “blockMesh” ,Message "command not found" appears.

Did you follow the User Configuration instructions? More specifically, is there a line

source /opt/openfoam201/etc/bashrc
in your ~/.bashrc file?
