Linux newbie problem

  1. Started with : Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS

  2. Downloaded Github project :

  3. Completed step by step instructions from :

Continue to Start your node :

I get error directly
Command ‘goal’ not found, did you mean:

command ‘gcal’ from deb gcal
command ‘gol’ from deb growl-for-linux

Try: apt install

any idea??


tried :
apt install goal

response :
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package goal

and still unable to use goal command


When you login to the machine there should be a folder “node” in your home directory. Change directory to “node” and run the command “./goal node start -d ./data”.

Unless you add the path to “node” to the environment path variable the shell doesn’t know where the goal executable lives. By appending “./” you are saying in this directory, run goal.


ok thanks. it seems that i am missing the “./” while running command node folder
