I just installed "visit", a scientific visualization software, on Ubuntu 12.04 using the commands given in the visit install notes for Unix given here. To be precise, my commands were entered from the directory I installed the .tar file and the install script (
/usr/Downloads), and were
chmod 755 visit-install2_7_1 ./visit-install2_7_1 2.7.1 linux-x86_64-ubuntu11 ../Documents/visit cd echo "set path = ($path /Documents/visit/bin)" >> .cshrc
Now, when I enter the command "visit" in the CLI it produces the error "visit: command not found". I'm not exactly a Linux guru, so what is the general fix for something like this? If you'll notice in the commands above, the search path is set (I'm not really sure what this is); could this be the source of the problem? I am only able to open the software by cd'ing to the
visit/bin directory and running ./visit, which I don't think should be necessary.
