Problems with installation
Hi to everyone. I'm new in this forum and I'm experiencing some troubles with the OpenFoam installation. I've got "squeeze" as version of ubuntu and I've added the repo

sudo sh -c "echo deb $VERS main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list" both with

$VERS= squeeze or $VERS=natty or any other ubuntu version.

My trouble is always the same, namely after typing "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get install openfoam 211", I get the error "Impossible to find package openfoam211".

I can't find out what/where is the problem. Has anyone any ideas?
Thanks :)

Greetings Simone and welcome to the forum!

You've got Debian, not Ubuntu ;)
edit: more specifically, you've Debian Squeeze

Try with this:

sudo sh -c "echo deb lucid main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list"
Best regards,
