Actually as a newbie I don't really know what is the problem.
As far as I can guess it's some errors I made when i tried to set some paths in /etc/profile.
Now after I start up my computer it says:
bash: id: command not found
[ : too many arguments
bash : tput:command not found
bash : tput: command not found
bash: wc: command not found
[: :integer expression expected
And whatever i type will result in
bash: command not found.
You add it to the *end* of your existing PATH statement in /etc/profile. paths are seperated by colons For instance if it now says
you make it
It's just adding a colon followed by the path you want to add
or if it is just for one user add the following line to ~/.bashrc
But is there anyway which i can use to check if the path has been correctly set?
By just typing clustalw and see if it run is one way,right?
If it's correctly set, my earlier mistake won't repeat itself again right?
echo $PATH shows
and alot more
But I don't see the path which I just typed into /etc/profile appearing anywehre.
And clustalw don't work either..
