I've been trying to install OpenFOAM-v1812 for windows 10 by using Ubuntu. I'm following the this guide to install the software: https://www.openfoam.com/download/install-windows-10.php After typing in the command source $HOME/.bashrc I get the following messages:

-bash: /opt/OpenFOAM/sudo: No such file or directory
chown: cannot access 'source': No such file or directory
-bash: /opt/OpenFOAM/sudo: No such file or directory
-bash: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFoam-v1812/etc/bashrc: No such file or directory
-bash: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFoam-v1812/etc/bashrc: No such file or directory

I've seen that a question like this have been asked earlier (Can't Configure Bash-Shell to Run OpenFOAM (working enviroment)), but since I'm very new with using Ubuntu and OpenFOAM I didn't get much out of the answer.

If someone has any idea of what the problem might be and how I could fix it, it would be very much appreciated!

Edit: I'm not exactly sure what steeldriver wanted me to include. When typing cat $HOME/.bashrc I got the following information:

    # ~/.bashrc: executed by bash(1) for non-login shells.

# check the window size after each command and, if necessary,

Please note me if this wasn't what you meant.

    It looks like you misunderstood the instructions, causing your $HOME/.bashrc file to become messed up. Please edit your question to include its contents (from cat $HOME/.bashrc or equivalent). – steeldriver Feb 12 at 14:41
  • I've editet the post to include the message I got when typing ´cat $HOME/.bashrc´. I hope it'll help understanding the problem! – Siganno Feb 12 at 15:04
  • You need to remove ALL the lines after the final fi and start over, following the instructions more carefully this time (in particular noting when you are supposed to run commands in the bash terminal versus adding them as lines to the $HOME/.bashrc file) – steeldriver Feb 12 at 15:16
  • I think that did the trick! Thank you for your advice! – Siganno Feb 14 at 7:25
