I want to use a specific APT program/application on linux, ie
The APT tools can be found here: https://media.affymetrix.com/support/developer/powertools/changelog/index.html
I've installed APT using
apt-midas cannot be found. How do I install
You need to make sure, that the

Basically, there are 2 ways:
1) Copy the binaries to location already in
PATH(what is in
PATHcan be viewed with
2) Add the directory with the binaries to
PATH(described many times on the web, e.g. here https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-add-directory-to-path-in-linux/)
I used this
export PATH=$PWD:$PATHcommand but still am unable to access
Have you verified that the
PATHhas been set? And, more importantly, were you located in the unpacked directory with the midas binaries? The
exportis also one-time setting only.
Also note, that there is a
bindirectory, which is the directory that you need to add.
One more thing, I've noticed, that on my systems, the binaries were not executable automatically, I've had to use
chmod +x apt-midas(replace the
apt-midaswith the program of your choice) to make them executable.
Could you post the command outputs if it still doesn't work?
The commands that I ran
apt-midas.htmlfile can be located in the directory but I wasn't able to call it with
This sequence of commands will not work.
Thanks! I managed to launch
However, I want to run the following
and got an error message:
ls -lit is obvious, that the
celfiles.txtdoes not have the read attribute set (note the missing
r). Set it using
chmod(usage e.g. here https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/File_permissions_and_attributes)
