I'm noob in linux, so i install feedingbottle, but then I open terminal showing this:

  bash: “PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/bin/feedingbottle/n”export: No such file or directory

The question is how to fix

ubuntu version is 14.04.1

So you've followed this "tutorial": http://www.n1tr0g3n.com/?p=1123

During that it told you to:

printf “PATH=$%sPATH:%s/bin/feedingbottle/\n” | tee -a ~/.bashrc

If you look closely you'll see that it's using curly quotes instead of the straight double-quotes (eg "). To Bash curly quotes are just another character, they aren't special like straight quotes.

So what you've actually done is added this whole corrupted line into ~/.bashrc. You need to fix it. Open ~/.bashrc in Gedit, or whatever you like, find this line (it's almost certainly at the bottom) and replace it with:


And be more careful in the future.
