sorry I'm not bringing answers...

I also have a pb with starting foamX.
When I try to run it I get the message:

runFoamXHB: Killing name server nsd(pid 2937).

I checked the following directories

and /home/flo/OpenFOAM/linux64/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin

and I found respectively FoamX and java in these folder.
so what can be the problem???

many thanks
