if not, type plane and press TAB two times to see the alternatives.

Alright, so your user doesn't have permissions to use the executable. Didn't the installer tell you to chmod the files after installing?

Did you read this:

it says you have to chmod +x the downloaded file and there's a bunch of other information too.

The directory
/opt
is not writable by the current use

how do i set /opt and tell it that i am the current user?

You need to use sudo in front of the command to get root-users rights so you can write anything else than your /home
