A few notes before you start copy-pasting:

+
# Lines that start with <tt>#</tt> don't have to be ''copy-pasted''. They are just comments to let you know what's going on.
+
# One wrong character is enough for breaking this guide, so make sure you can read the characters properly or that the installed language system does not break the copied characters!

'''Discussion thread where you can ask questions about these steps''': ''none so far.''
+
 
+
Steps:
+
<ol>
+
{{Installation/Linux/SwitchToRoot}}
+
 
+
<li>Install the necessary packages:
+
<bash>apt-get install git flex bison rpm build-essential zlib1g-dev binutils-dev \
+
openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev subversion qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev gnuplot \
+
libreadline-dev libncurses-dev libxt-dev
+
 
</bash>
 
</bash>
  
Just in case, make sure to uninstall the "gold" binutils version:
+
Then create an additional link:
<bash>apt-get remove binutils-gold</bash>
+
<bash>sudo ln -s /usr/bin/make /usr/bin/gmake
</li>
+
 
+
{{Installation/Linux/ExitRoot}}
+
 
+
<li>Set-up the base folder where foam-extend-3.0 will be installed (here you can copy-paste all in single go):
+
<bash>cd ~
+
mkdir foam
+
cd foam
+
</bash></li>
+
 
+
<li>The next command will depend on the repository mirror you want to use:
+
* Extend's official repository: <bash>git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/foam-extend-3.0 foam-extend-3.0</bash>
+
* Extend's official repository (''https'' mode, if you're behind a firewall): <bash>git clone https://git.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/foam-extend-3.0 foam-extend-3.0</bash>
+
* Mirror at repo.or.cz repository: <bash>git clone git://repo.or.cz/openfoam-extend-foam-extend-3.0.git foam-extend-3.0.git foam-extend-3.0</bash>
+
* Mirror at repo.or.cz repository (''http'' mode, if you're behind a firewall): <bash>git clone http://repo.or.cz/r/openfoam-extend-foam-extend-3.0.git foam-extend-3.0</bash>
+
* Mirror Unofficial-Extend-Project-Mirror@github repository: <bash>git clone https://github.com/Unofficial-Extend-Project-Mirror/openfoam-extend-foam-extend-3.0.git foam-extend-3.0</bash>
+
</li>
+
 
+
<li>After the cloning is complete, go into the cloned folder and switch to the {{tt|master}} branch:
+
<bash>cd foam-extend-3.0
+
git checkout master</bash></li>
+
 
+
<li>Configure the preferences file:
+
<bash>cp etc/prefs.sh-EXAMPLE etc/prefs.sh
+
 
+
#Use the system compiler and configure to use Gcc 4.6
+
echo "export WM_COMPILER=Gcc46" >> etc/prefs.sh
+
 
+
# Use the system installation of OpenMPI
+
sed -i s/"#export WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI"/"export WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI"/g etc/prefs.sh
+
sed -i s/"#export OPENMPI_DIR=path_to_system_installed_openmpi"/"export OPENMPI_DIR=\/usr"/g etc/prefs.sh
+
sed -i s/"^#export OPENMPI_BIN_DIR"/"export OPENMPI_BIN_DIR"/g etc/prefs.sh
+
 
+
# Use the system installation of Qt
+
sed -i s/"#export QT_DIR=path_to_system_installed_qt"/"export QT_DIR=\/usr"/g etc/prefs.sh
+
sed -i s/"#export QT_BIN_DIR=\$QT_DIR\/bin"/"export QT_BIN_DIR=\$QT_DIR\/bin"/g etc/prefs.sh
+
 
+
#here you can change 4 to the number of cores you've got
+
echo "export WM_NCOMPPROCS=4" >> etc/prefs.sh
+
</bash></li>
+
 
+
<li>Now to do several more necessary fixes:
+
<bash>#Create a symbolic link for gmake
+
ln -s /usr/bin/make bin/gmake
+
 
+
#disable X dependencies in tecio
+
sed -i -e 's=\(U_WIN32\)$=\1 -DENGINE=g' \
+
applications/utilities/postProcessing/dataConversion/foamToTecplot360/tecio/tecsrc/Make/tecioOptions
+
 
+
#fix detail in vtkPV4Foam
+
sed -i -e 's=-lfiniteVolume=-lfoam -lfiniteVolume=' \
+
applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PV4FoamReader/vtkPV4Foam/Make/options
+
</bash></li>
+
 
+
<li>For building 1.6-ext itself, it depends on whether you have installed the i686 or x86_64 architecture of Ubuntu. To check this, run:
+
<bash>uname -m</bash>
+
Now, accordingly:
+
<ul>
+
<li>For i686:
+
<bash>echo "export WM_ARCH_OPTION=32" >> etc/prefs.sh
+
 
+
# repair broken template maximum
+
sed -i 's/template-depth-40$/template-depth-200/' wmake/rules/linuxGcc46/c++
+
</bash></li>
+
 
+
<li>For x86_64:
+
<bash># repair broken template maximum
+
sed -i 's/template-depth-40$/template-depth-200/' wmake/rules/linux64Gcc46/c++
+
</bash></li>
+
</ul>
+
</li>
+
 
+
<li>''Activate'' the environment and save it in the personal {{tt|.bashrc}} file:
+
<bash>source etc/bashrc
+
 
+
echo "alias fe30='source \$HOME/foam/foam-extend-3.0/etc/bashrc'" >> $HOME/.bashrc
+
 
</bash>
 
</bash>
{{Installation/Linux/AliasNote|foam-extend 3.0|fe30}}
 
</li>
 
  
<li>Build the several stages of the {{tt|ThirdParty}} folder in a single go:
+
Then continue following the instructions on the previous page, subsection [[Installation/Linux/foam-extend-3.0#Installing from source code|Get the source code]].
<bash>cd ThirdParty
+
  
# This next command will take a while... somewhere between 5 to 30 minutes
 
./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
 
 
#Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
 
./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
 
</bash>
 
</li>
 
 
<li>To check if everything went well:
 
<bash>#Edit the file "log.AllMake" and check if there are any error messages
 
#Example:
 
gedit log.AllMake
 
 
#Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
 
#or if you don't understand the output
 
#and attach the file "log.AllMake.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
 
tar -czf log.AllMake.tar.gz log.AllMake
 
</bash></li>
 
 
<li>Now let's build foam-extend-3.0:
 
<bash>#Go back to the main folder and update the environment
 
cd ..
 
source etc/bashrc
 
 
# This next command will take a while... somewhere between 30 minutes to 3-6 hours.
 
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
 
 
#Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
 
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
 
</bash></li>
 
 
<li>To check if everything went well:
 
<bash>#Check if icoFoam is working
 
icoFoam -help
 
 
#Edit the file "make.log" and check if there are any error messages
 
#Example:
 
gedit make.log
 
 
#Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
 
#or if you don't understand the output
 
#and attach the file "make.log.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
 
tar -czf make.log.tar.gz make.log
 
</bash></li>
 
 
<li>Now, to build [[Contrib/swak4Foam|swak4Foam]], follow the instructions given here: [[Installation/swak4Foam/Installing_On/Ubuntu]]</li>
 
 
<li>Now you can go read the User Guide, which is located at {{tt|$HOME/foam/foam-extend-3.0/doc/Guides-a4/UserGuide.pdf}}.</li>

<li>Now to do several more necessary fixes:

#disable X dependencies in tecio

sed -i -e 's=\(U_WIN32\)$=\1 -DENGINE=g' \

+
<li>For building 1.6-ext itself, it depends on whether you have installed the i686 or x86_64 architecture of Ubuntu. To check this, run:
+
<bash>uname -m</bash>
+
Now, accordingly:
+
<ul>
+
<li>For i686:

<bash>echo "export WM_ARCH_OPTION=32" >> etc/prefs.sh
+
 
+
#copy the rules from ''Gcc46'' to ''Gcc48''
+
cp -r wmake/rules/linuxGcc46 wmake/rules/linuxGcc48

+
# due to stricter name lookup rules in 4.8 we need to tell the compiler to lighten up on this
+
sed -i 's/^\(c++FLAGS.*\)/\1 -fpermissive/g' wmake/rules/linuxGcc48/c++
+
 
+
# repair broken template maximum
+
sed -i 's/template-depth-40$/template-depth-200/' wmake/rules/linuxGcc48/c++
+
 
</bash>
 
</bash>

<li>For x86_64:
+
Then create an additional link:
<bash>#copy the rules from ''Gcc46'' to ''Gcc48''
+
<bash>sudo ln -s /usr/bin/make /usr/bin/gmake
cp -r wmake/rules/linux64Gcc46 wmake/rules/linux64Gcc48

</ul>
 
</li>
 
 
<li>''Activate'' the environment and save an ''alias'' in the personal {{tt|.bashrc}} file:
 
<bash>source etc/bashrc
 
 
echo "alias fe30='source \$HOME/foam/foam-extend-3.0/etc/bashrc'" >> $HOME/.bashrc
 
</bash>
 
{{Installation/Linux/AliasNote|foam-extend 3.0|fe30}}
 
</li>
 
 
<li>Build the several stages of the {{tt|ThirdParty}} folder in a single go:
 
<bash>cd ThirdParty
 
 
# This next command will take a while... somewhere between 5 to 30 minutes
 
./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
 
 
#Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
 
./AllMake.pre > log.AllMake 2>&1
 
</bash>
 
</li>
 
 
<li>To check if everything went well:
 
<bash>#Edit the file "log.AllMake" and check if there are any error messages
 
#Example:
 
gedit log.AllMake
 
 
#Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
 
#or if you don't understand the output
 
#and attach the file "log.AllMake.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
 
tar -czf log.AllMake.tar.gz log.AllMake
 
</bash></li>
 
 
<li>Now let's build foam-extend-3.0:
 
<bash>#Go back to the main folder and update the environment
 
cd ..
 
source etc/bashrc
 
 
# This next command will take a while... somewhere between 30 minutes to 3-6 hours.
 
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
 
 
#Run it a second time for getting a summary of the installation
 
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
 
</bash></li>
 
 
<li>To check if everything went well:
 
<bash>#Check if icoFoam is working
 
icoFoam -help
 
 
#Edit the file "make.log" and check if there are any error messages
 
#Example:
 
gedit make.log
 
 
#Create a tarball in case you've seen any errors (it's the first error that matters)
 
#or if you don't understand the output
 
#and attach the file "make.log.tar.gz" to a post in the designated thread
 
tar -czf make.log.tar.gz make.log
 
</bash></li>
 
 
<li>Now, to build [[Contrib/swak4Foam|swak4Foam]], follow the instructions given here: [[Installation/swak4Foam/Installing_On/Ubuntu]]</li>
 
 
<li>Now you can go read the User Guide, which is located at {{tt|$HOME/foam/foam-extend-3.0/doc/Guides-a4/UserGuide.pdf}}.</li>
