Hi everybody,

I've applied installation guide which exists in
http://openfoam.org/download/2-1-1-source/

It should be mentioned the GCC version of ubuntu 16.10 is 6.2 but in below link noted that is not supported for OF211.
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...ibility_Matrix

A attached file is provided to diagnose the building process and errors.

Would you please guide me to solve them.

Sincerely Yours
Kasra

Quick answer: I don't have time to try this out myself with OpenFOAM 2.1.1, but a few weeks ago I wrote the instructions for installing OpenFOAM 2.4.0 on Ubuntu 16.10: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_16.10
Steps #3, #8 and #9 are the ones I expect you will need to use as well for 2.1.1.

Kasra,

I passed 2 entirely days trying to solve OpenFOAM 2.1.1 and Ubuntu 16.04, got alot problems with packages. After those days, I could make OpenFOAM works, but without Paraview.

I can give you 4 tips:
1 - flex --version = 2.5.35
http://repository.timesys.com/builds...-2.5.35.tar.gz
(install instructions inside file)
Reason: OpenFoam v2.1.1 for Ubuntu 16.04

2 - gcc --version = 2.7.x
g++ --version = 2.7.x
http://askubuntu.com/questions/26498...-and-g-version
(download and install instructions inside file)
Reason: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...tion_.28GCC.29

3 - qt = 4.6.3 (qmake --version)
http://download.qt.io/archive/qt/4.6...c-4.6.3.tar.gz
(install instructions on link below)
Qt version of Paraview 3.8.0 in OpenFOAM 1.7

After all those hacks, OpenFOAM runs perfect on 16.04, but ParaView keeps giving me COPY_FILE erro on VTK and doesn't got make file on the path /OpenFOAM-2.1.1/wmake/rules/linux64Gcc47. (Already downgrade Ubuntu 14.04, don't got make.logs)

4 - If you can, install on Ubuntu 14.04.
Is easy to do it, just do what is saying on for Ubuntu 12.10
https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...M-2.1.1/Ubuntu
only difference is on package I include this:
Code:
 sudo apt-get libqt4-opengl-dev freeglut3-dev libqtwebkit-dev  libscotch-dev
I don't know if must add those, but work that way.

Greetings to all!

I've finished writing and testing the complete instructions for building OpenFOAM 2.1.1 in Ubuntu 16.10: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_16.10

@Kasra: If you are still having trouble building it, hopefully these instructions will make things easier to follow.


@Vitor: Many thanks for sharing your experience!
I'm going to test the instructions I wrote for 16.10 on 16.04 and let you know if they also work for that version. But it should allow building ParaView with Ubuntu's own build of Qt 4.8. I'll edit this post once I'm finished.

edit: I've confirmed that the instructions also work on Ubuntu 16.04

Best regards,
Bruno

Hello, I'm new to OpenFoam, must install the version 2.1.1 cause I want the RisingBubble Tutorial to work out.

I installed this in bash Ubuntu on Windows 10 and got a lots of errors. Does the installation also applicable for bash Ubuntu Windows 10?
Thank you.

Thank you.
Quick answer: I'm not certain if Ubuntu on Windows 10 is using Ubuntu 16.04 or 17.04 or 17.10.
If it is using Ubuntu 16.04, and if you tried following the instructions given here: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_16.10 - Then please follow the instructions written there that tell you how to package the log files and attach them to your next post.

Hi I hope you can help me here,

I am trying to install OpenFOAM version 2.1.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 and am following the guide that Bruno posted:

https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_16.10

however when i run step #8 i get the following errors:

Cannot open configuration file /home/sgncerul/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.1/platforms/linux64Gcc/openmpi-1.5.3/share/openmpi/mpicc-wrapper-data.txt
Error parsing data file mpicc: Not found
Cannot open configuration file /home/sgncerul/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.1/platforms/linux64Gcc/openmpi-1.5.3/share/openmpi/mpicc-wrapper-data.txt
Error parsing data file mpicc: Not found

I've checked and mpicc is present however the platforms folder isn't which from what i've understood gets created when you run Allwmake, so i'm not sure why this is an error before running the Allwmake command. can anyone help?

thanks
Nic
