5. Aliases II


#1

For some reason I can't move on to the next section of this question. Here's what I do

  1. nano Open ~/.bash_profile
  2. I type: export USER="Ebony"
  3. Ctrl + O, Enter, Ctrl + X, clear

Nothing happens or gets checked off. Sometimes I'll try again, clear it and then put in the source section but still doesn't get checked off.

I've refreshed this activity and had it restarted several times and still can't get it to work. What am I doing wrong? Is there a glitch?

Thanks!

Oops, sorry Leonhard, I typing 'Open nano ~./bash....' instead of just nano.
