error in eclipse

i have an ubuntu 10.04 (32 bits) with OF 1.7.0 install.

i try to run eclipse for "pisoFoam" (like in tutorial of user's guide) and i receive the following error

/usr/bin/ld: cannot open output file /opt/openfoam170/applications/bin/linuxGccDPOpt/pisoFoam: Permission denied

make: ***[/opt/openfoam170/applications/bin/linuxGccDPOpt/pisoFoam] Error 1

do you have an answer about this?

Best regards

Permissions issue...
Hi Ovidiu,

The answer to that issue is in this post: openfoam commands "urgent help" - post #3

Best regards,

I think you might also want to check to see if your Make/files file includes this line:


EXE = $(FOAM_USER_APPBIN)/solverName
the default is this:


EXE = $(FOAM_APPBIN)/solverName
which, if the install directory isn't your home directory, you likely won't have permissions. In my opinion, changing to your FOAM_USER_APPBIN directory is preferred over changing the ownership of the /opt directory.
