I am a new OpenFOAM user and am trying the command "fluentMeshToFoam elbow.msh", and am getting a command not found response.
Kindly help me how to rectify this.
Thank you

Hi Patricia and welcome.

It seems you omitted one step after the installation and it is to source a setup file by:

source $WM_PROJECT_DIR/etc/bashrc

on your command line. Have you compile OpenFOAM from tar.gz files or you have installed some precompiled version? Which version anyway?
