Problem on Installing OpenFOAM 1.6 on Fedora 11
I installed the OpenFOAM-1.6, and set the environment variables in the way in the file README. However, after I restart my computer, I found there was nothing in desktop of my computer, and I can not open GUI to view files. When I opened the terminal, I found there was one warning in terminal that was following:
"age: grep [OPTION]... PATTERN [FILE]...
Try `grep --help' for more information.
kde4-config: /root/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/gcc-4.3.3/platforms/linux/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by /usr/lib/".

So, I just reset environment variables in order to make my computer normal.

What is the problem with what I mention above? How to solve it?

Hi lzgwhy,

I remember I had a similar problem with F11. First I'd install the libstdc++ that seems to be the problem:

su -c 'yum install'
Then, the empty desktop etc was in myy case due to the fact that somehow Nautilus (the file browser) was not allowed to be on the desktop en browse files in my session. I installed gtweakui, a small app that can set these kind of things, by

su -c 'yum install gtweakui'
Then, in "System > Preferences > gTweak-UI " and allow Nautilus to draw the desktop (see the picture for my settings that work, for me at least :)).

Hope this helps a bit :)

Regards, Gijs
