Hi everyone!
I have a similar problem.
I did what is written here http://sourceforge.net/p/openfoam-ex...u/Ubuntu_14.04
but I cannot install.
When I do ./Allwmake I obtain:
Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variable are not consistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them.

What can I do?
Thank you.

Hi! I have Ubuntu 14.04.2 and I cannot install the foam-extend-3.1.
I did what is written here:
https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...oam-extend-3.1
but when I do cd
~/foam/foam-extend-3.1
source etc/bashrc
I obtain:bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/bin/foamGetSystemInfo: File o directory non esistente
bash:
/opt/foam-extend-3.1/bin/foamCleanPath: File o directory non esistente
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/bin/foamCleanPath: File o directory non esistente
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/bin/foamCleanPath: File o directory non esistente
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/etc/settings.sh: File o directory non esistente
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/etc/aliases.sh: File o directory non esistente
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/bin/foamCleanPath: File o directory non esistente
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/bin/foamCleanPath: File o directory non esistente
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.1/bin/foamCleanPath: File o directory non esistente

It means the file or directory doesn't exists.


I have succesfully installed OpenFoam, instead.
May you help me?
Thanks

Hi,

you point on two directories/paths!
once you write you type command cd ~/foam/foam-extend-3.1 ->this is in your home directory and the installation should be
~/foam/foam-extend-3.1
the error message points to /opt-directory
/opt/foam-extend-3.1...

so I guess your ~/.bashrc is not okay
it can be okay to install in /opt but ~/.bashrc and other enviroment variables should point on /opt in that case

Thank you for the answer.
Anyway I made a mess and now the error is:
Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variables are not consistent with the installation.
Please source configuration files.

Examples:
bash: . etc/bashrc
tcsh: source etc/cshrc

If you sourced the configuration files, please check the 'foamInstall' entry.

Hi all,

I'm experiencing the same problem with the installation of foam-extend-3.0. When I digit
Code:
. etc/bashrc
I get the following message:

Code:
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/bin/foamGetSystemInfo: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/etc/settings.sh: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/etc/aliases.sh: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
bash: /opt/foam-extend-3.0/bin/foamCleanPath: No such file or directory
I tried to follow the suggested link but I couldn't sort my problem. Can anyone please help me step by step with this?

Best regards,
Gabriele

Quick answer @Pisu: I'm late on this but the solution is that you need to create aliases for each version of OpenFOAM/foam-extend and then start a new terminal.
If it still happens, then it's because there is a lost "etc/bashrc" line that is not within an alias or perhaps you need to log out and then log back in into the desktop (although this shouldn't be necessary).

For more details, read section 2.2 "Using aliases to help manage multiple OpenFOAM versions": https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...nFOAM_versions

Hello,
I have foam-extend 4.1 and openfoam v1906 installed on Ubuntu1804 (Windows subsystem). I'm also using aliases to switch between both environments.
the ESI version works without any problem, but when I try to use anything in foam-extend, for example "blockMesh -help", I get the following error:
Code:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
           Could not find mandatory etc entry (mode=ugo)
           'controlDict'
same thing when I try "simpleFoam -help"
I saw in a previous post by Wyldckat that this might happen when OF is installed in a directory containing spaces, but it is not the case. the command which foamExec gives:
Code:
/opt/foam/foam-extend-4.1/bin/foamExec
the "tut" command goes correctly to foam-extend tutorials folder, so the environment seems to be correctly loaded.
Thanks in advance for your help,

Kazu
