    Looks like you have the client residing in a different directory now. It's not in /home/daniel /.FAHClient anymore.

    Change the alias to the new path: /home/daniel/folding

    Log out, and back in. Then try the alias again.

    This Is Mint 15 folders, I can see the difference between the Mint 14 and the Mint 15, I just don't know what to do to fix 15.

    Sorry about the pictures, I enlarge then in my files to make them more viewable, but they post here as being very small. I'll try full screen settings in Xen

    Did you try what I told you to do in my previous post?
    Did it not work?


    If not, then in 15...

    Code:
    ls -al ~

    I'm sorry...I tried to fake it to avoid having to tell you I don't know what an "Alias" is.

    I know I need the Fah seem in my Mint 14 home folder, but I don't remember how to get it there...

    You can give up on me now if you like without recriminations on my part. ":O}

    Code:
    cd /home/daniel
    rm client.cfg
    rm FAHlog.txt
    rm fah6
    Then:
    open .bashrc in your text editor, and change the path in the line that begins with 'alias'

    It says /home/daniel/.FAHclient now. It must say /home/daniel/folding, because that is where you put the client files this time.

    After you change the .bashrc file, you have to log out and back in, or reboot for the changes to be seen by the OS.

    After you reboot, try to start the client in your usual way, by typing 'fah'

    Indeed it is! ":O}

    One last favour...on this topic! LOL

    Would you edit the following, pair it down to what I actually need to get up and running...I think I have to many un-needed steps and that I'm getting lost in my own instructions!



    mkdir -p ~/folding
    cd ~/folding
    curl -O http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/release/FAH6.34-Linux64.tgz
    tar xzf FAH6.34-Linux64.tgz

    After the FAH client is downloaded, the client needs to be configured. Please run these 2 commands:

    chmod +x fah6
    ./fah6 -configonly -smp

    After the client is configured, there are different methods for starting the FAH client. The most basic method is to enter in following command:



    Search for, if not found:

    Dan - try creating a .bashrc file in your /home/daniel directory.

    Paste this line into it:

    Code:

    alias fah='cd /home/daniel/.FAHClient && ./fah6 -smp -verbosity 9'

    Then reboot and try it.

    Type: fah


    Code:

    cd /home/daniel
    rm client.cfg
    rm FAHlog.txt
    rm fah6



    Then:
    open .bashrc in your text editor, and change the path in the line that begins with 'alias'

    It says /home/daniel/.FAHclient now. It must say /home/daniel/folding, because that is where you put the client files this time.

    After you change the .bashrc file, you have to log out and back in, or reboot for the changes to be seen by the OS.

    After you reboot, try to start the client in your usual way, by typing 'fah'

    Everything is correct until this part:

    First, the rm commands I gave you were to remove some files that you placed in the wrong location somehow. All of the client files should be in the same directory, as a sub-directory of ~. These commands should not be part of the directions, assuming that you place the client files into the right directory. Never in the root of /home/daniel/

    As for the .bashrc file, your instructions should say:
    Code:
    Paste this line into it, but *MAKE SURE* the path to the client files is correct:
    alias fah='cd /home/daniel/NAME_OF_CLIENT_DIRECTORY_HERE && ./fah6 -smp -verbosity 9'
    Other than those comments, those directions should work every time.
