Hi,

Answering your question: command replaces all occurrences of "cmake-2.8.3" to "cmake-2.8.4". (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=what+is+sed%3F, first link, then section Usage: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sed#Substitution_command).

And since the error is

Code:
sed: can't read /makeCmake: No such file or directory
It means $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR environment variable expands into empty string, i.e. it is not defined. So, I guess, you have forgotten to set up environment variables with "source /path/to/your/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/bashrc".

Hi,
first of all thanks for your quick and useful reply.

about environment variables i use these commands, are they wrong?

echo "alias OF20x='source \$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/myBashrc'" >> $HOME/.bashrc

cp $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/bashrc $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/myBashrc

sed -i s/"paraview.sh"/"myParaview.sh"/g $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/myBashrc

cp $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/config/paraview.sh $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.0.x/etc/config/myParaview.sh

Hi,

Surely it is fun to use duckduckgo.com, yet you can use your preferred search engine (especially before posting questions):

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=how+to+set...or+openfoam%3F

1st link: http://www.openfoam.org/download/source.php (section Setting Environment Variables, instead of 3.0.1 you can put 2.0.x)

5th link: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...ment_Variables
