I recently downloaded OpenFOAM on an Ubuntu 18 machine and it has been working great until I tried to run the alias "of7" which I needed for a tutorial I'm following.

After I ran "of7" I got the following message "(pathNo such file or directory"

When I downloaded I followed https://openfoam.org/download/7-ubuntu/

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Tenichols,

Did you add this line 'source /opt/openfoam7/etc/bashrc' at the end of your bashrc? How you have defined your alias? If you post that, it would be easy to look into your problem.

Yes I have executed the following:
"gedit ~/.bashrc"
and added "source /opt/openfoam7/etc/bashrc" at the bottom of that file and saved.

I am curious though, when I go to my bashrc file manually "gedit /opt/openfoam7/etc/bashrc" The file looks different than when I use ""gedit ~/.bashrc", what is going on here?

What do you mean by How you defined your alias?

Sorry I'm new to all this. I appreciate your help.

You have mentioned that you have executed of7 and it is not working. Here in your case 'of7' is the alias (short name or nick name) for 'source /opt/openfoam7/etc/bashrc'. So if you have not mentioned alias, add this following line at the end of your gedit ~/.bashrc
Quote:
alias of70='source /opt/openfoam7/etc/bashrc'
''

If you want to know more about, how to define alias go to this following link and refer section 2.2.2https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...with_the_Shell

If you have installed in a different directory then check out this link, it might help you bash: /opt/openfoam230/etc/bashrc: No such file or directory

Hope this is clear for you,

Krao
