Nano 6/11 Step 2 will not work

Hi,

Step 2 on nano 6/11 will not accept my entry:

export PS1=">> "
CTRL + O
Enter
CTRL + X
Clear

Is goes through all of the steps, but the check mark for completion will not get selected. What am I doing wrong?

hello @jamierachael

Are you seeing the bottom bar in nano?
if not then try zooming in and out until you see it.

As far as I remember this also happened with me and that bottom bar wasn’t visible

On pressing ctrl + o you’ll be asked in nano to confirm the filename so y’ll have to press enter for that.

Thank you! I also read a few other threads stuck on the same part. I ended up returning to the very first part of the Nano lesson and resubmitting my answers, then it gave me the check.

Thank you for your response!
