As I was attempting to run the 'adder' program from the week 1 lecture I realized that not only does my cs50ide not have any of the cs50 functions in it, my window doesn't look anything like the profs. No wonder I haven't been able to tackle pset1 on a week. Help!

First, "make" may be complaining because of incorrect syntax. You should make conditions not make conditions.c. Assuming, of course, there is a file named conditions.c in ~/workspace/pset1 and it is C source code. Which, according to the file navigator in the left column, there is no such file.

To see if you have a proper CS50 environment, what is the result of version50 at the command prompt?

  • Good call on the make conditions variable @DinoCoderSaurus. I typed 'make conditions' and received make: *** No rule to make target `conditions'. Stop. When I typed version50 the Cs50ide replied 93. What does that mean exactly? Dec 8 '16 at 19:27
  • That means you are on the CS50 IDE version 93 (which is the latest or a very recent version). Your workspace should have all the CS50 "functions" you need. Many of the profs videos are created on the VMWare appliance that is retired for the 2016 edX version of CS50, replaced by the CS50 IDE under cloud 9. It looks like you have the right version, so that might not explain the problems you are having. The problem illustrated by the picture is that conditions.c does not exist. It is unclear from your question what other problems you are encountering. Dec 8 '16 at 21:33
  • Having you say that I am in the right appliance makes me feel a ton better @DinoCoderSaurus! Thank you! I understand now why I could not follow the examples from the lecture verbatim. My only question (and hopefully the last) is how can I get the library to show up on the side bar? In the lectures the prof has them displayed on the right side and that seems to be very useful to reference. Dec 8 '16 at 21:58
  • What lecture specifically, and what time point? Which libraries are you talking about? Dec 9 '16 at 1:56
  • In the week 1 lecture first lecture around the 35 minute point when the prof types in 'get adder' in the terminal and nothing happens he then references the entire library that is located on the right side. He also references them being in folders that I don't have. Is that what you meant @DinoCoderSaurus? Dec 9 '16 at 18:19
