heheda is on a distinguished road
I'm trying to install OpenFOAM-2.3.1 from source on Ubuntu 18.10 (I have installed the 7th version of OpenFOAM). When I try to launch ./Allwmake I get this error:

./Allwmake: 4: ./Allwmake: wmakeCheckPwd: not found
Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variables are inconsistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them.

please help me solve this problem,thank you very much!!!

With these older versions you need to pay particular attention to the contents of the OpenFOAM etc/bashrc to ensure that directory location is correct (you probably need to manually edit the file).



After making those changes and sourcing the etc/bashrc file, check that the value of "$WM_PROJECT_DIR" makes sense.


Note that with such an old version of OpenFOAM, you are very likely to run into various compilation issues with newer compilers.
