Did you downloaded the file to your Download folder?
When you open the terminal you're already in your home folder. When you type:

Code: Select all

ls
you will see all the folders in your home folder.

So, my best guess is, if your file been downloaded to your Download folder, you should type:

Code: Select all

 cd Downloads
