I have installed Linux mint 18 sara on VM Ware 10 installed on windows 10 64bit. The installation of OS linux done accurately. All updates done fine. When I try to install Omnet 5.0 via terminal then I got problem specially in very initial step after extraction to home directory.
when i type
omnetpp-5.0$ .setevn its give error of no directory found and the same problem is with .configure too. 
any body who have installed omnet 5.0 on linux. kindly provide solution please.

$ . setenv

(note the space between . and setenv)

.setenv is a non-existent file
. setenv is sourcing the content of 'setenv' file into your shell

And with configure, you have to write ./configure with a slash, and no space.
In this context, . is the current working directory. Usually on GNU/Linux systems, it's not searched for commands/programs automatically.

the . setenv and . /configure also executed successfully.

now facing the problem in snap shop as make and make install isn't working. I am personally thanked to both of Rudlof Horning and Attila Torok.
