- Subject: commands not found
First I'd like to say that I am sorry for having to ask this. But I have
searched the site, read the faqs and documentation, and poked around the
directory structure and I am still at a loss.
Basically I just can't use any of the commands. 'cd' and 'pwd' seem to work,
but 'ls' and even 'man' don't. Most things that I want to use I am told that
the command is not found.
I can go to the /bin direcotry and type ./ls, and it works. So I guess that
maybe my path is not right. The path in the /usr/etc/default/etc/profile is
sufficient. And this is the only place that I can find the .bashrc files and such.
What do I need to do? And why would this functionality not be there from the
beginning. It shouldn't be this hard to make this work. I must be doing
Thanks in advance
