I am running Debian 10. I have installed OpenFOAM from Debian's repository.
Looking at the version number 1812, it seems this is version instead of

After installation I am unable to configure OpenFOAM correctly since the $FOAM_RUN environment variable is empty and nothing matches with documentation I have read.

After lots of effort I found that OpenFOAM might be installed at /usr/share/openfoam

$ls /usr/share/openfoam/etc/
bashrc  caseDicts  cellModels  codeTemplates  config.csh  controlDict  cshrc  mergeHistory  templates  thermoData
How do I configure and start with OpenFOAM?
