Hi Marhamat,

First of all, it's a bit strange you did not get any message after running foamInstalationTest. In a case you installed it correctly, you have to have at least positive response
(at the end it's written:

Base configuration ok.

Critical systems ok.

Did you get that? If yes, type to terminal:
cd $HOME/OpenFOAM/${LOGNAME}-1.3/run/tutorials/icoFoam

and type: blockMesh . cavity (please note that there are spaces before and after dot.) When you do that, what response do you get?

Another question: What linux distribution you use?
