helo tobimorak,
You probably figured it out already. Openfoam does not like certain filenames in the case directory. In this case probably 'Ubuntu One' with a space.
Hope this helps

dear wouter,
I'm quite out of space in my ssd disk of my laptop by now. So I would often have the need to try/run/visualize some cases on an external USB I have, but which unfortunately is recognized as TOSHIBA EXT by the system, with a whitespace in the name! Is this possible modifying some files as fileName.H to make OF digest these names strings?

hello gned,
if you use linux you can make a link and use that in your filename. I have to find out myself how to do that, but google can tell you.

Hope that helps

hello gned,
Thinking a little longer give me two other solutions. 1) start from the USB stick, no problem if the casedirectory has a space, only a problem if there are filenames in the casedirectory with spaces.

2) move a or some case directory(ies) from your ssd to a USB and than copy your new case to the ssd and start from the case directory

hope this helps
Wouter
