Need help to install. I'm installing treehouse VM and it doesn't work

After I finish installing treehouse VM, open the downloads folder and it creates a treehouse folder than I go to treminal to change directory, which is cd treehouse but my Mac Pro says "no such file or directory". I did everything Jason said. It's been a while trying to install ruby. Thanks for looking in to this issue.

cd treehouse

is using a relative path. it will look for a directory named treehouse inside the directory you are currently in. the treehouse folder probably is not inside your current directory. use an absolute path (the full path to the file starting at the root of your system) to the treehouse folder that was created

cd /the/absolute/path/to/the/treehouse/folder

Thanks Stone! Unfortunately, I get "No such file or directory".

what path did you use?

Before running cd treehouse, you might want to move the treehouse folder to where you usually do any web dev projects. It sounds like you just unzipped the folder in your Downloads folder.

  1. First move the treehouse folder where you normally place your web dev projects if you have a location like that.
  2. Then in Terminal cd into the location where you placed the treehouse folder. If you're not very familiar with moving around directories in Terminal, you can just type cd and then from a Finder window drag the treehouse folder into your Terminal window. Dragging the folder into Terminal automatically inserts the full directory path of the folder you just dragged in.

Hope that makes sense. If not, you can also take Treehouse's Console Foundations course if you haven't already done it.

I am on my mac and still cannot get the VM to launch every time I type the vagrant up command is says "vagrant: command not found" please help
