Hello everyone,
For last few days I'm trying to install OpenFOAM in version 2.2.x on my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
For unknown reasons, I can't install it from repository (sudo apt-get install opnefoam222) I've read on this forum that someone already had such problem, but I didn't found any solution for this issue.
However, I'm creating this topic not to highlight the problem with repository, rather to ask you, whether you've met with errors after installation OpenFOAM 2.2.0 by sources?
To be more precise, after doing as it is written on the website of OpenFOAM:
http://www.openfoam.org/archive/2.2.0/download/source.php
I tried to use snappyHexMesh software and at that point I realize that OpenFOAM folder doesn't have few files, i.e. meshQualityDict (full link OpenFOAM-2.2.0/etc/caseDicts/meshQualityDict), which leads to errors.

Have you met with such problem before or you know any way to solve this issue?

Regards
Andrzej

Greetings Andrzej,

You're referring to 3 slightly different versions of OpenFOAM 2.2:
  • 2.2.0
  • 2.2.2
  • 2.2.x
Neither one has a Deb package for Ubuntu 14.04, which is why you cannot install it by using:
Code:
sudo apt-get install openfoam222
As for building from source code, at least for OpenFOAM 2.2.2, you can find complete instructions here: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_14.04
Building 2.2.x is just a matter of adapting a bit the instructions from 2.2.2 to 2.2.x, as pointed out here: http://www.openfoam.org/archive/2.2.2/download/git.php

As for having more than one version installed: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...with_the_Shell

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,
You were right in all points. I did not know that OpenFOAM 2.2.x is different version, I truly thought that "x" stands for all "2.2." versions. Thus, let's focus only on ver. 2.2.2. You are also right that netiher of them have package for Ubuntu 14.04. Hence, I installed version 12.04, hoping that it would help.

By having lower version of Ubuntu, I do not need installing OpenFOAM by sources, I just had to use:
Quote:
sudo apt-get install openfoam222
However, the problem with meshQualityDict file as I wrote previously is still missing and now I don't have clue why would that occur.

Regards
Andrzej

-----------------------------
I copied the file from here: https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...eshQualityDict
and it is working. I hope that this was only file which was missing

Hi Andrzej,

Uhm... something is amiss here... when I run the following command with a working environment of OpenFOAM 2.2.2:
Code:
find $FOAM_TUTORIALS -name "*Dict" | xargs grep "meshQualityDict"
I only get this result:
Code:
/opt/openfoam222/tutorials/heatTransfer/buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam/iglooWithFridges/system/meshQualityDict:    object      meshQualityDict;
/opt/openfoam222/tutorials/heatTransfer/buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam/iglooWithFridges/system/snappyHexMeshDict:    #include "meshQualityDict"
Therefore, I suspect you're trying to do something with a case that was configured to work in OpenFOAM 2.3, but trying to use it on OpenFOAM 2.2. Which, well... you're lucky there was such a "meshQualityDict" file already available in OpenFOAM 2.2!

Best regards,
Bruno
