I have a switched graphics laptop. Often when I up update Ubuntu (I am on on it overwrites the Radeon driver and when I dont have that I cant boot. Until someone tells me a better way I usually go into the downloads directory where I keep a copy of the driver and re-install. This time after I login from recovery. when I type cd/home/antony/Downloads it tells me -bash: cd/home/antony/Downloads: No such file or directory..... Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? thank you

cd/home/antony/Downloads is not a file or directory. Insert a space.

cd /home/antony/Downloads
