There isn't any folder called jharvard in which I could save a file. As a result, I get the following message in the compiler: No rule to make target 'hello'. Stop.

Would anybody be so kind to help me fix this problem? Thanks in advance.

  • There shouldn't be. You should have a folder named Dropbox or some other folder. Then you need to change directory using the following dictation: cd ~/(folder name) Jan 16, 2015 at 6:23

The jharvard folder is inside the home directory. You can acces it with the home icon in your desktop, or if you open a file explorer window you can see it in the left colum. Also when you open a terminal you are in the jharvard directory by default.

Hope that helps.


Click the home folder in desktop its the jharvard folder and when you open the terminal its already open on that folder:Example for the jharvard folder

I hope you can understand from this.
