not even starting on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Hi! I have some problems making OpenFOAM+ work on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I followed the OpenFOAM Binary installation and successfully installed docker (the user is in the group docker, I have checked as well). I downloaded both installOpenFOAM+ and startOpenFoam+ scripts and made them executable. The terminal output that I get when I run them both is the following one:


parallels@ubuntu:~$ ./installOpenFOAM+
Following Docker containers are present on your system:
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                            COMMAND                  CREATED            STATUS                      PORTS              NAMES

Creating Docker OpenFOAM+ container of_v3.0_plus
docker: Error response from daemon: Conflict. The name "/of_v3.0_plus" is already in use by container 7e51a7b73971bd2bb3f9b00fe680167000a039af429d43487d0c2ec5479ef22a. You have to remove (or rename) that container to be able to reuse that name..
See 'docker run --help'.
Container of_v3.0_plus was created.
Run the startOpenFOAM+ script to launch container
parallels@ubuntu:~$ ./startOpenFoam+
non-network local connections being added to access control list

Now, when I want to just test the cavity case by typing:

It stops I don't know why after I type paraFoam and the whole session is terminated and it logs out...

Any idea how I could solve this? Thanks in advance!
