Clearly you're looking to compile and install some software from source code, but if this source code is not in the directory you're trying to work in, naturally you're not going to get the result you're after.
In general we don't know what gromacs is, what fftw is (i guess i'm roughly right there) or xmgrace / grace... and whether they exist or not, so that side we can't comment on too much. but as above, the "ls" command will always work in a bash window if you're typing in L S in lower case.
Well er, GROMACS (GROningen MAchine for Chemical Simulations) is a molecular dynamics simulation package. So Im trying to install gromacs in VMWare. I copy and pasted it into my VMWare from Windows XP. The commands were given to us during tutorial lessons though we werent taught what it does. Base on the commands, can you perhaps enlighten me? Im supposed to do modelling of liposomes using Fortran
