Hello fellow foamers;
As you know it is take a long time for compiling OpenFOAM from source. To save the time in compiling and configuring , then actually learning about it , I precompiled OpenFOAM with Paraview 4.2.0 installation for Ubuntu x64 and created a script to install it on your Ubuntu Machine , (tested with Kubuntu 14.04)
Following are the steps you need to follow
1.Extract OpenFOAM.tar.gz
2.Type in terminal
chmod +x
3.Run the script in terminal and follow on screen instruction
4.If you are installing in computer file system run the script in root terminal by typing (Proceed with caution.I am not responsible for any harm that comes to your system )
sudo -s
5.Close your terminal and open new terminal and type your alias like
Report any error in this thread also i will be making monthly builds from OpenFOAM git repo and also give feedback if you need any new features in this scripts
PS:I have built OpenFOAM from latest git repository and paraview 4.2.0 with python support .I have also installed OpenFOAM in my system dir /opt/OpenFOAM no error and it worked fine.

HI, I had previously tried the standard installation instruction for Ubuntu 14.04 on my Mint 17 installation (based on Ubuntu 14.04). That failed because it couldn't find the opengl_include_dir, even though opengl was installed and working. I deleted the libraries created by that installation and tried your one, but when I do of230, it just doesn't do anything - no error message either. What might be going wrong?
