how do i install wikidpad in ubuntu

Asked by Mikkel on 2010-01-08

Hi im very new at this. I have af program on windows called Wikidpad. I found this desciption on how to install with the terminal, but it dosent work.
Method:-
Download the V1.9 source from here: http://wikidpad.sourceforge.net/
(Don't use the V1.8 source as there is a "copy & Paste" problem when running this on Linux).

Unzip and save all files & folders to a suitable location (e.g. /home/steve/wikidpad)

Open a terminal window & type:-
CD /home/mikkel/wikidpad
python WikidPad.py

I copy paste this into the terminal, and the path should be right, and it ends up saying something like this
mikkel@Mellem-monster:~$ CD /home/mikkel/wikidpad
CD: command not found
mikkel@Mellem-monster:~$ python WikidPad.py
I've tried different ways to write it, but it all ends up with the command not found or file don't exist.

The file do exist, so what am i doing wrong ?

The command is cd, in lower case.
So you should type something like cd /home/mikkel/wikidpad

Thanks a lot, that was probably the only difference in writing i hadn't tried :)
