OpenFOAM repository cannot be authenticated ...
Hi to all,
I would like to install the OpenFOAM ubuntu package as explained in http://www.openfoam.com/download/ubuntu.php but synaptic warns me that the software cannot be authenticated and so I wonder if it is safe and if and how to ask OpenCFD for a better level of security for this repo.
If you don't trust the hidden download links via Synaptic, you can always download the Debian files from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/foam/files/
That is from where the system implemented by OpenCFD will get the files from.
The files you'll be wanting are:
After downloading, simply double-click on each downloaded file and let gdebi-gtk help you install each the package :)
If you feel strongly about them not having a secure/validated system to work with Synaptic, you can always "complain" about it here: http://www.openfoam.com/mantisbt/ ;)
there is also the "not official" ubuntu repository made by Oliver Borm for those interested in OF1.5-dev it has nice features (GGI) you do not find in OF1.7.x!
