Hi, I have posted in the spigot help forums and haven't gotten an answer yet after a few days, so I am posting this here.
I am trying to start up a server on my Ubuntu(Linux) laptop, using Spigot. I already ran Buildcraft, and moved on to installing and running Spigot. I have also extracted the spigot executable, in another folder.
Then, following instructions, I created a script file(.sh) inside of the spigot file(which was created by running the spigot executable), and moved on to the next step, where I opened a terminal and input the command chmod +x start.sh.
However, when I executed the command in the terminal, I ran into an error I haven't had any luck fixing: "chmod: cannot access ‘start.sh’: No such file or directory"
I've tried changing the file name to it's directory path, but I get the same error!
If anyone can help, please do! It would be much appreciated!
I recently moved on from Windows to Linux, so I am still figuring things out. When I ran BuildTools for the weirdest reason it put everything in the home directory while it was sitting in Documents, which must have caused this. But I am still confused about where do you see my file path in the terminal window? Maybe it's obvious and I'm just being stupid, haha. Thanks for responding!
After I ran those commands, I ran into yet another error. 'Tis the life of a coder.. Anyway, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to post this here or create another thread, but as this is directly linked to everything above I'll go ahead and post it here.
After I followed your steps that all worked beautifully, and ran the command I was having trouble with in the first place, I then moved onto the next step of installing spigot, where I ran the command "./start.sh" in the terminal.
When I ran it, out came the next pesky error, "Error: Unable to access jarfile spigot.jar". I couldn't find any file named "spigot.jar" so I tried the spigot1.1.something.jar file, I've tried changing the properties to allow the jar to run as executable, and moving it into the actual folder. Is it possible there is a second spigot.jar I haven't seen yet, or that the other file didn't unpack properly?
