I want to install OpenFOAM V.5 (from CFD direct), OpenFOAM+ v1706 (from ESI), and foam-extend 4.0 (from project foam-extend) all together on Ubuntu.

How should I do that? I know the installation of all three versions, if I'm installing them individual, but what is the procedure if I want to install all three of them on single system, without conflicts with each other?

Hi,

You should make aliases to load the particular bashrc file for each version. For example I have this in my ~/.bashrc:

Code:
alias of30x='source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-3.0.x/etc/bashrc'
alias of4x='source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-4.x/etc/bashrc'
alias of5x='source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-5.x/etc/bashrc'
alias ofplus='source ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-plus/etc/bashrc'
alias ofdev='source ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-dev/etc/bashrc'
alias foam32='source ~/foam/foam-extend-3.2/etc/bashrc'
alias foam40='source ~/foam/foam-extend-4.0/etc/bashrc'
which means that when I open a new terminal I have to type the alias corresponding to the version I would like to use. Just make sure you open a new terminal when you want to switch versions.

Regards,
Tom

just to add on, you may also source /etc/bash.bashrc if you dont want to open a new terminal
Hope it helps.
