Those commands are intended to be entered one at a time. In some cases, I used examples for filenames.

First, please create the directory using:
Code:
sudo mkdir /usr/local/foundry/FLEXlm
Next, tell us where the license file is, and what is the name of the file. Use the "cd" command to navigate to different locations.
Other handy commands:
"pwd" to find out where you are
"cd .." to go up one level (ie to leave a directory you just entered)

$sudo mkdir

hi you might want to do some reading on basic linux commands ( some of them are the same as the Microsoft "cmd.exe" (terminal) commands .
https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/index.html
http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-G...tml/index.html
http://www.linux.org/lessons/
http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/cmd/
http://www.yolinux.com/
you might also want to have a look at the ubuntu web site
http://www.ubuntu.com/support
------ but -----------

in Ubuntu you do not need to do any of this from the terminal just use the Gnome GUI as you would in MS Windows) except that some of the things need to be done as root and not a normal user


is this what you are installing ?
http://www.flexerasoftware.com/

but
then you said this
Quote:
Extract Nuke from the tgz archive
Nuke ??? as in WHAT "Duke Nukem " or "Darik's Boot and Nuke"
PLEASE post a link to where you got this software from.

but to extract a tarGZ in the Gnome desktop ( or KED also) just double click on it THE SAME WAY YOU WOULD ON MS WINDOWS !!!!!

helpme*;

We've obviously not communicated!!

When you are given a command string all on one line, then it gets entered all at once. Previously, I had several lines of commands that were intended to be entered one line at a time.

I just noticed that your terminal prompt shows "root". Have you enabled the root account on your system? If so, then you would not need sudo. (The normal Ubuntu setup will require sudo before any administrative command.)

So...you need to enter one of these two commands (the whole line):

Code:
sudo mkdir /usr/local/foundry/FLEXlm
or
mkdir /usr/local/foundry/FLEXlm
You may want to consider getting a tutorial on basic shell (terminal) commands----for example, this one:
