Hello everyone,

Well, after a lot of install problems we finally got OpenFOAM to successfully install after switching from Icc to using the supplied version of Gcc. I was put to the task of testing out the install and tried to do the first tutorial, Lid-Driven Cavity Flow. For whatever reason, when I run the command blockMesh (yes, I've made sure that I type it in as blockMesh), I get "-bash: blockMesh: command not found."

I don't really have a clue as to what is going on with it (other than that it either wasn't made or isn't linked correctly): any help would be appreciated.
