I followed the instructions at this page: http://www.huyng.com/projects/bashmarks/ to install bashmark on ubuntu. I have not understood what the guide mean with "add source ~/.local/bin/bashmarks.sh from within your ~.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc file". What am I supposed to do?

  • Do you now have a ~/.local/bin/bashmarks.sh file? – jobin May 29 '14 at 13:43
  • Yes I have found it – Caos May 29 '14 at 13:45

It asks you to open a terminal and open either ~/.bash_profile or your ~/.bashrc and type the following at the end of the file:

source ~/.local/bin/bashmarks.sh

This will execute the contents of ~/.local/bin/bashmarks.sh in the current shell everytime you start a new instance of bash.
