I am trying to cd /home/ervin/Downloads/psneuter in order to push psneuter to an android phone in order to root it. I believe the path to the file and folder is correct, yet I get a message no such file or directory. Am I doing anything wrong? It worked in Fedora, don't know about here.

  • What does ls -d /home/ervin/Downloads/ say? – muru Nov 17 '14 at 19:40

Just drag and drop the file in the terminal.


You can also use the below command to find the path of the file.

find . | egrep filename

  • If you're using find, why not use its features? You don't need grep. The command would be find ~ -name 'psneuter*' -print. That assumes that the folder is within the user's home folder; if that assumption is invalid, use / instead of ~. – Paddy Landau Nov 18 '14 at 9:29
  • Are you 100% sure you got all the capitalization in the directory names correct? Caps matter in unix.
  • Or perhaps the files is a psneuter.tar file and you have to untar it first to get the real psneuter executable. This is why I never hide file extensions in any GUI.

I have had the same problem, and it could be either downloads whit the capital low charter or you could enter in the therimal this:

  sudo -i
  cd ~/downloads/psnurther

and it might work fine this way.
