"Sourcing" the script is accomplished by typing ". /home/preston/EasyIO/bin/.niagara" at the prompt[/I]
Where can I find the niagara script? It does not seem to be in my home directory? Plus, how can i link this script in my home directory?
If /home/preston is your home directory then you should have a subdirectory called EasyIO. Check to see if that is the case as follows.
Click on Places at the top of the screen.
Is there a listing for EasyIO?
Under the EasyIO directory is another directory called bin.
Inside the bin directory is a file called .niagra. Unfortunately the file has a period as the first character so it will only be visible if you look for hidden files.
So when you click on Places then click on EasyIO that will launch the Nautilus file browser. The Nautilus file browser is similar to Windows Explorer. If you click on the View button you will see a list of options. Click on "Show Hidden Files". Then navigate to the EasyIO/bin folder. You should see the .nautilus file.
As to how to source the file manually the instructions already told you how to do that.
Open a terminal window.
Enter the following line at the command prompt.
If you want that to happen automatically when you open a terminal window then you have to edit or create a file in your home directory called .bash_profile. You will add that same line in the .bash_profile file.
You can edit or create the $HOME/.bash_profile file with any text editor, not with a word processor.
One way to do this is to open the gedit application. Insert that line into the gedit window then save the file as .bash_profile in your home directory.
If you already have a .bash_profile file in your home directory then edit it with gedit, add that line, and save it.
It is important to note that the file name starts with a period. The file name is .bash_profile so the period in the beginning is part of the file name.
