making new directory in Ubunto

by Sky High   Last Updated July 14, 2018 07:02 AM

I'm new to Ubunto (18.04 LTS) and need to install a software (Juliapro) on it. based on the manual, I installed the per-requisit by TERMINAL, but for installing the script file in below path

chmod 777 JuliaPro-0.6.3.1.sh

./JuliaPro-0.6.3.1.sh /home/julia/

this error appears:

Installing JuliaPro-0.6.3.1 to /home/julia/ mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/home/julia/’: Permission denied tar: /home/julia: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now /tmp/self-extract-bash.sy4y22/install_juliapro.sh: line 113: cd: /home/julia//JuliaPro-0.6.3.1/Scripts: No such file or directory

However I'm in admin account, I'm not familiar with how allow it to create the directory.

The permissions errors might have been caused by using the admin account; if so you can eliminate the permissions errors by running all commands from your regular account and prefacing each command by sudo in order to get root permissions.

sudo chmod 777 JuliaPro-0.6.3.1.sh  
sudo ./JuliaPro-0.6.3.1.sh /home/julia/
