Ok, I've managed to DL, unzip, change permissions, turn it executable now I have 3 similar problems....
1) I can never get it to recognize the URL for the -update_prefs command... whats the URL? Is it "http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/xxxx" being xxxx your user account? If it is, it ain't working... for me.
2) Beacuse of the above problem I've deleted the files 2ice to get it to DL new prefs file, yet when it does it doesn't follow my settings. I've got it set in the prefs to NOT work when theres computer activity, yet it's always working in 2 different computers. I've configured, general, office, home and school all the same just in case...
3) How do I get it to put the many downloaded files in the same directory as where it''s being launched from? This is where I have it:
I launch it generally by opening terminal, opening a new window, dragging the file into the terminal window to make the path address and then pressing return.
Please take into consideration I'm an absolute nOOb at command line and I've managed so far by searches and RTFM, but I'm really stumped now. Pleasse explain things as if they were for your grandma... or de she do *nix as well?? ;-)
