Two different version

Im new in Linux and OF. I installed OF 1.7.1 in my home directory. On the same machine, there is OF 1.5 already installed in a root director where i dont have access to. Now when I run a case, the cases still get solved with the old OF 1.5 solvers. What do I have to change, that I can solve cases with the new version?

Thanks for your help

Greetings Andi and welcome to the forum!

Just follow the idea explained here: making Opt and Debug available with one command (post #2)
That post was a reply to a similar issue, but I think it's pretty simple to adjust to your case :)

Best regards,
