Hello. I have a question to ask you. I am using Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit operating system.
I have a MagBook that I have used for some time now as a explicit and well developed guide to Linux Ubuntu latest distribution version v.11.04 (Okay, stand corrected – 'near' latest version now (v.11.10 is latest).) You can read the MagBook as a good non-fiction novel. :- ) Source: “Linux – The Complete Manual”, Jim Martin, Ed., Dennis Publishing Ltd., London, England, 2011.
Okay... ...it addresses in a section “Anti-Virus Software” how to install a highly recommended software security program most of us have heard of BitDefender Anti-Virus package for Linux Ubuntu. I have used BitDefender personally a few years ago on Windows 7 and I have had very good success with it. Regardless your personal thoughts and opinions and getting side tracked, I am in need of your help as I am having serious issues installing the security program.
After successfully requesting a free personal use license directly from BitDefender via my e-mail, I go to the URL: http://tinyurl.com/dymsjb
. Because I am using a 64-bit machine, I select the option: BitDefender-Antivirus-Scan
b.run (The first one.) and save the file.
Once downloaded, I run Terminal. Now, the installation process of BitDefender Anti-Virus requires me to use the command line through Terminal. I am told to enter the command:
Now, this is where the problem arises. When I enter the cd /Desktop in Terminal, it states:
bash: cd: /Desktop: No such file or directory
Obviously, an issue here.
Can you tell me what is going on here? What does that mean and how can I correct this? Honestly, I am not sure in Unix/Linux/Debian/Ubuntu language, what this command is supposed to do?
To assist in your response since I may leave you aloof at this point without any follow through on what is to happen next; so let me share by quoting what proceeds next from the text:
“Now enter the following (noting the capital B of a 'Bit'), but instead of clicking Return, press the tab key. This will fill in the long filename for the downloaded BitDefender package:
sudo sh Bit
Hit Return and you'll be asked for your password. Enter it and the BitDefender license agreement appears.” ...I will stop here at this point since I believe you now have enough supporting information now.
(If I have more issues at a later stage in this process; I will post a new question thread at such time if necessary.)
So, what is the reason and and answer/solution to why I am receiving from Terminal:
bash: cd: /Desktop: No such file or directory ¿???
