Hi all, I tried to use SRA toolkit to down and convert .sra file to fastq file in Linux. However, I have problem using SRA toolkit.

After I wget SRA toolkit and extract it, I tried to run the test command as stated on the official website "fastq-dump -X 5 -Z SRR390728" in the directory of /home/[user_name]/sratoolkit[version]/bin. The error is that: "The program 'fastq-dump' is currently not installed. To run 'fastq-dump' please ask your administrator to install the package 'sra-toolkit'" What may be wrong?

Also, if I want to use SRA toolkit on a server that I have no root. How do I download and use SRA toolkit(cause I have the same error when I do the previous on the server)?
