trying to install Opencobol

Postby AlRADAU » Fri Feb 15, 2013 2:35 pm

Hi I am new to linux and am trying to install Opencobol, but when I issue the ./config I get this

al@al-desktop ~/opencobol/open-cobol-1.1/bin $ ./config
bash: ./config: No such file or directory

when I look it up in the manual I get

l@al-desktop ~/opencobol/open-cobol-1.1/bin $ man ./config
man: ./config: No such file or directory
No manual entry for ./config

can someone please help

Made you your own topic. Please before you post, read how to get help as also linked in the forum rules above.

Anyway, you are going the Windows way around this. I suggest you read my how to install software on Linux Mint post to understand how you install software on Linux Mint. The OpenCOBOL compiler you can easily install from the Software Manager, the package is called open-cobol. Probably the OpenCOBOL wiki will be instrumental in finding your away around :wink:
