Default problems with openFoam extend 3.0 installation

Hi everybody,

I've already had openFoam 2.3.0 on my linux ubuntu 12.04 and recently I've installed
openFoam extend 3.0 according to:

now I have two problems:
1. I cannot run cases in openFoam 2.3.0 like before. When I type of23 (like my bashrc file) in terminal, terminal returns 'no such file or directory', although I don't have this problem with openfoam extended by typing fe30.
(The bashrc and chshrc files are attached)

2. After running a case in openFoam ext 3.0, when I type paraFoam at terminal the paraview opens but i cannot process the output data.I think this originates from the qt step.

(The prefs.csh file is attached too)

I know it's a trivial problem but I demand your help.

Attached Files
File Type: gz bashrc-cshrc-prefs.csh.tar.gz (1.9 KB, 3 views)

Quick answer:
  • Full details:
  • You "bashrc" and "cshrc" files have a critical flaw in this line:
    alias of23='. $opt/openFoam230/etc/bashrc'
    "$opt" is wrong. It should probably be "/opt" instead, although the overall path seems and bit strange. Check if it really exists by running:
    ls -l /opt
    ls -l /opt/openFoam230
