    Unhappy Error in installing Heasoft

    I'm trying to install a package called heasoft in order to do some nuclear physics research. I can't seem to get the commands to work, even though I'm following the instructions as far as I can tell. Here is the instruction page:

    Here is how I've tried to type the commands. It's a standard pre-built binary, as I'm not advanced enough to mess with the source code.

    rxs103@nucpc30:~/heasoft-6.26/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-libc2.27/BUILD_DIR$ export HEADAS=/home/rxs103/heasoft-6.26/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-libc2.27/BUILD_DIR
    rxs103@nucpc30:~/heasoft-6.26/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-libc2.27/BUILD_DIR$ . $HEADAS/ ERROR -- cannot execute /home/rxs103/heasoft-6.26/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-libc2.27/BUILD_DIR/BUILD_DIR/headas-setup

    You should use those commands in your terminal (home)
    export HEADAS=/home/rxs103/heasoft-6.26/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-libc2.27 # you need to be sure thattthe x86_..... is a folder in your heasoft folder
    . $HEADAS/
    alias heainit=". $HEADAS/"

    you need also to add the alias to ~/.bash_aliases

    Here is an interesting video explaining the installation
