Hi all,

I am completing some University work using Bash on Ubuntu on Windows interface.

I am tying to modify the SimpleFoam solver. However, the following error message appears when I execute the wmake command:

/opt/openfoam5/wmake/wmake: line 409: make: command not found
/opt/openfoam5/wmake/wmake: line 412: make: command not found
wmake error: file 'Make/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/sourceFiles' could not be created in /home/Matt-ts/OpenFOAM/Matt-ts-5.0/applications/simpleFoamDev

Prior to executing this command I have completed the following steps:

1). Copy simpleFoam solver to $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR /applications
2). Rename the simpleFoam to a new name (which I have named as simpleFoamDev).
3). Rename source code from simpleFoam.C to simpleFoamDev.C
4). Edit files file in the make folder to:

simpleFoamDev.C
EXE = $(FOAM_USER_APPBIN)/simpleFoamDev

5). Return to SimpleFoamDev folder and enter:
wclean
wmake

This is when the error message appears as per above.

I have been following the modification guide which has been alluded to on previous posts:

Does anyone know what the issue may be?

This is the real problem. You are either missing the package "make" or the path to make binary is not included in the variable PATH. First, check if you have make installed

Code:
> dpkg -l make
Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold
| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name             Version       Architecture  Description
+++-================-=============-=============-======================================
ii  make             4.1-6         amd64         utility for directing compilation
Code:
> which make
/usr/bin/make
You should get an output as shown above. If not, then you would have to install either the "make" or the "build-essential" packages and make sure that the path to "make" (/usr/bin for Ubuntu) is included in the environment variable PATH

Code:
> echo $PATH
/home/user/salome_7.5.1/salome_appli_7.5.1:/usr/lib64/openmpi/bin/:/home/user/bin:/usr/games:/home/user/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/snap/bin

Possibly make not being installed.

Try running:

which make

If no result then you'll need to install it.

Thanks anuragm and Andy!

I did not have the make package installed.

Many thanks both!
