paulw is on a distinguished road

I'm using a Mac but have a Ubuntu 12.4 virtual machine set up.

I have very limited C++ experience but my dad has been a programmer for about 25-30 years and he's a little lost by it too.

During the User configuration stag, step 3: test that the icoFoam application is working by typing "icoFoam -help" in a new terminal window.

The response from this is "icoFoam: command not found"

I haven't been able to do anything that can fix it. Any suggestions? Is this a common error?

I've tried uninstalling (remove) OpenFOAm and starting again but to no avail, it won't uninstall.

Should I reinstall the VM and start again?

Any help is greatly appreciated. I've got my final year project next year and really want it to be in CFD so I need to teach myself how to use the software over the summer to show I've made some headway.

Thank you in advance.
