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


#1

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.


#2

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


#3

$ 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
/home/ccuser/workspace/movies/drama/biopic
$ ls
cleopatra.txt frida.txt lincoln.txt lincon.txt notorious.txt ray.txt

Remember to type the command after the shell prompt.

instructions:
1.
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.

2.
Then type

cp frida.txt lincoln.txt

Click Next to learn about this command.


#4

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
