Need help with 77% part 2


In the terminal, type

nano ~/.bash_profile

This opens up a new file in nano.

(Tip: If you are unable to type ~, you can find help here.)
In ~/.bash_profile, at the top of the file, type

echo "Welcome, Jane Doe"

You can use your name in place of "Jane Doe".

Type Ctrl + O to save the file.

Press Enter to write the filename.

Type Ctrl + X to exit.

Finally, type clear to clear the terminal window.

I get stuck after the first part


so after typing nano ~/.bash_profile and be directed into the terminal you will then type in "welcome ____." you hold down ctrl+o(letter) it'll save,then press enter,press crtl +X to exit from there type clear after the shelling. Common mistake is then people type it in instead of pressing the buttongs


I am stuck here too. It clears the screen, but #4 won't highlight so I can go on with the lesson. I have done it 3 times and still stuck.


Perfect. Thank you for your help!
