View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need help installing this .tar file, please!

September 19th, 2010, 03:08 PM
Hi everyone!
I need some help installing a third-party software. It's called rescuetime.
I downloaded the .tar file from their website, rescuetime.com Linux (link) (https://launchpad.net/rescuetime-linux-uploader), and extracted it via Archive Manager in my folder, "/home/pooja/". Inside the extracted folder, rescuetime-linux-uploader-99, I found a README file with installation instructions. Following the instructions, I installed the Firefox plugin (I never use Epiphany). I then went on running
python setup.py build then
sudo python setup.py install
These last two commands are supposed to install a script into /usr/bin/rescuetime_linux_uploader that allows one to run the executable from the command line and it will also install the gnome panel applet. However I can't find the rescuetime_linux_uploader script so I'm getting the following message from the Terminal

pooja@pooja-laptop:~$ cd ~/rescuetime-linux-uploader-99/
pooja@pooja-laptop:~/rescuetime-linux-uploader-99$ rescutime_linux_uploader
rescutime_linux_uploader: command not found

Now I'm stuck, I don't know how to proceed - can somebody help me, please?
I'm attaching the README file.
