Need help with command line lesson 2 pt. 4/10 (27%)


I can do the first part of the instructions which says to navigate to the drama/biopic/ directory, but in part two it says to type "cp frida.txt lincoln.txt" I do that but in lights up red and on the bottom of the screen it reads "remember to type the command after the shell prompt." I've tried ls -alt etc. and nothing seems to work.


Could you post a screenshot? preferable with pwd and ls, so i can see what directory you are at, and which files are in the directory


$ cd drama/biopic
$ cp frida.txt lincon.txt
$ ls -alt
total 32
-rw-r--r-- 1 ccuser ccuser 1431 Dec 22 15:06 lincon.txt
drwxr-xr-x 2 ccuser ccuser 4096 Dec 22 15:04 .
-rw-r--r-- 1 ccuser ccuser 13 Jul 8 17:33 cleopatra.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ccuser ccuser 1431 Jul 8 17:33 frida.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ccuser ccuser 2309 Jul 8 17:33 lincoln.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ccuser ccuser 13 Jul 8 17:33 notorious.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 ccuser ccuser 7 Jul 8 17:33 ray.txt
drwxr-xr-x 4 ccuser ccuser 4096 Jul 8 13:05 ..
$ pwd
$ ls
cleopatra.txt frida.txt lincoln.txt lincon.txt notorious.txt ray.txt

Remember to type the command after the shell prompt.

Let's move on to copying, moving, and removing files and directories from the command line.

Navigate to the drama/biopic/ directory.

List all files and directories in the working directory.

Then type

cp frida.txt lincoln.txt

Click Next to learn about this command.


that explains, you copy frida.txt to lincon.txt, this should be lincoLn.txt

i capitalized the l you are missing, but that should be lowercase obviously


Oh, thanks so much! Can't believe I missed that


thanks I also stuck with the same problem
