Re: Trouble with Screenfetch

Whenever I try to wget that address, it 404's after the http request. I'll try to extract the archive.

Re: Trouble with Screenfetch

Fixed it! In hindsight it was kind of a noob mistake; I was trying to run it from the wrong directory. But now that it is in /usr/bin/, how do I make it an executable?

I tried this,

 chmod +x /usr/bin/screenfetch-dev 

and it goes through with no errors, but screenfetch-dev still isn't made an executable. Also, when I try and run it from /usr/bin/ it says permission denied. What do?

*edit: Disreguard everything! I fixed it again. I was trying to run just "screenfetch" instead of "screenfetch-dev." Can I just rename screenfetch-dev to screenfetch in order to simplify the command? Thanks again porkpiehat.

Re: Trouble with Screenfetch

If you already moved it, you have to use "sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/screenfetch" (or if it's actually called screenfetch-dev, use "sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/screenfetch-dev")

If that still doesn't work, please show me the output of

ls -l /usr/bin/screen*

Re: Trouble with Screenfetch

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. It turned out that I had successfully moved screenfetch-dev from /etc/screenfetch to /usr/bin, but I was trying to run it using "screenfetch" instead of "screenfetch-dev" which the file had actually been named.
