I am trying to install activator in my linux system.

so first I install java

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

downloaded succefully

then I downloaded activator

sudo wget

then added path

export PATH=$PATH:/home/govind/activator-1.3.4/

then reloaded bash by

source ~/.bashrc

then I try to start activator

govind@LINUXSERVER:~$ sudo activator
sudo: activator: command not found

I tried to print path

-bash: /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/home/govind/activator-1.3.4/: No such file or directory


govind@LINUXSERVER:~$ ls /home/govind/activator-1.3.4/
activator activator-launch-1.3.4.jar README.html templates
activator.bat LICENSE.html repository

but not successfull!! what am I missing??


Create a symbolic link to activator:

sudo ln -s /home/govind/activator-1.3.4/activator /usr/bin/activator

You do not need to edit bashrc profile.
