error in running a command

Sun Feb 08, 2015 12:14 pm

I am trying to run the downloaded script with following commands :
1.chmod +x install-piface-real-time-clock.sh
2.sudo ./install-piface-real-time-clock.sh
I am getting error as "command not found" for second command. Then what should i do?

Look at the very first line in that script. If it's a shebang line (i.e. starts with #!) then likely that program does not exist.

It is not any program. I am trying to download script for RTC using these two commands that i have mention earlier.

Is it safe to assume you're trying to run this bash program?

Run it like this:

sudo bash -x ./install-piface-real-time-clock.sh

and it will spew out lots of extra output that should help you identify what's missing.

Running it on my system gets

Code: Select all

[email protected]:/tmp/PiFace-Real-Time-Clock$ sudo bash -x ./install-piface-real-time-clock.sh
+ [[ 0 -ne 0 ]]
+ RPI_REVISION=
+ set_revision_var
++ grep Revision /proc/cpuinfo
+ rev_str='Revision     : 000f'
+ len_rev_str=15
+ chr_index=14
+ chr=f
+ [[ f == \2 ]]
+ [[ f == \3 ]]
+ RPI_REVISION=2
+ enable_module
+ echo 'Enabling I2C module.'
Enabling I2C module.
+ module=i2c-bcm2708
+ modules_file=/etc/modules
+ grep -q i2c-bcm2708 /etc/modules
+ start_on_boot
+ echo 'Changing /etc/rc.local to load time from PiFace Clock.'
Changing /etc/rc.local to load time from PiFace Clock.
+ sed -i 's/exit 0//' /etc/rc.local
+ [[ 2 == \1 ]]
+ i=1
+ cat
+ printf 'Please *reboot* and then set your clock with:

    sudo date -s "14 JAN 2014 10:10:30"

'
Please *reboot* and then set your clock with:

    sudo date -s "14 JAN 2014 10:10:30"

Thank you sir.
I did it the same way as you told. But I didn't get that much data as that of yours. I just got a single message ending with :
".........it is a directory."
Once again thank you, sir.

Please show the whole, exact, message. It is not easy to guess what is wrong without it.
The best thing to do is to copy and paste the output, including the command, just as Dougie did.
