v1606+ Installation on Mac OS El Captain using Docker
Hope all is well I have been recently trying to install the binaries of open-foam using docker as described in ( The osx version im using is el captain, everything goes smoothly after downloading and I run these commands :
mkdir -p $FOAM_RUN
cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity .
and they are ok
but when I enter blockMesh or icoFoam command i receve "command not found"
What could possibly the problem be ? I would apreciate your solve as I really would like to have open foam installed on my osx

Configure bash entry

Are you able to resolve the issue yet. ? Note that install docker toolbox in Mac and not docker (which run natively on machine).
Also , if you have installed docker-toolbox , then click on docker quick start terminal and
type command 'docker images' and 'docker ps -a' and post the output here
