When i run the install script on linux i get:

rein@VisionZ600:~/Programs/VfxForth64Lin$ ./InstallMe.Lin64.sh
/usr/lib ~/Programs/VfxForth64Lin
[sudo] password for rein:
cp: cannot stat '/home/stephen/buildkit.dev/software/COMPILER/x64.elf': No such file or directory
/usr/local/bin ~/Programs/VfxForth64Lin
ln: failed to create symbolic link 'vfxlin64': Permission denied
ln: failed to create symbolic link 'vfx64': Permission denied
./InstallMe.Lin64.sh: line 59: VFXBINFILE: command not found
./InstallMe.Lin64.sh: line 59: cr .( type bye to exit ) cr: command not found

The /home/stephan is hard coded in the script...

Am i doing something wrong?

I've come across this error (and other errors, too) because Stephen's home directory is hard-coded into many scripts and binaries.  I'm not familiar with how to fix them all, but in this case change line 19 of InstallMe.Lin64.sh to:

sudo cp -p  Bin/x64.elf  /usr/local/bin

My apologies for the script failures. I have been told (off) by our Linux/git guru that my directory structures for git are all wrong. It will take a while to fix this and the scripts. Please send corrections to me at stephen@vfxforth.com.

Thank you, Stephen.  I am happy to help and will send in corrections.  This is a good excuse to delve into VFX Forth some more.
