OpenFOAM 1812 - Compilation
Before compiling OpenFOAM we need to make sure, that all the needed libraries are installed.
On Ubuntu 20.10 some packages need to be installed prior to compilation. On Ubuntu 20.10 the below list should work. To install them go to the console and:
sudo apt install gcc
sudo apt install libopenmpi-dev
sudo apt install zlib1g-dev
sudo apt install flex
Then, make sure you have access to the MPI library (both commands should print version information):
Change the directory to the place where you want to store OpenFOAM (you need to provide your own path):
cd /home/<user name>/<..custom path>/
Download archives with OpenFOAM code by using “wget” command:
Extract archives, e.g:
tar -xzf OpenFOAM-v1812.tgz
tar -xzf ThirdParty-v1812.tgz

Check if OpenFOAM has access to all necessary libraries
(optional) Set the number of processors to use during compilation
