You can add the path to the Harmony binary files to the $PATH environment variable. This will allow you to run Harmony and its applications and utilities from a terminal by typing the name of the executable files, without having to type their full path.
In a Terminal, navigate to the location where you previously extracted the Harmony package for installation—see Installing Harmony on GNU/Linux.
$ cd ~/Downloads/name-of-package
Run the installation script with the -e option.
$ sudo ./install -e
The Toon Boom Harmony license agreement prompt appears.
- In the License Agreement dialog, take the time to carefully review the license agreement. Use the Up and Down keys to scroll through the text in the agreement and read it until the end.
- Press Tab to switch to the AGREE and DISAGREE buttons. You can use the Left and Right keys to switch between selecting the AGREE or the DISAGREE button:
- If you agree with the license agreement, select the AGREE button and press Enter.
- If you disagree with the license agreement, select the DISAGREE button and press Enter.
A dialog will prompt you to confirm that you want to add the path to the Harmony binaries to the $PATH environment variable. You can use the Left and Right arrow keys to select Yes or No. Select Yes and press Enter.
The install script will add the path to the Harmony binaries to the $PATH environment variable.
To verify that the change has been applied, open a new Terminal window and type the following command:
$ echo $PATH
The path to the Harmony bin folder should be included in the output, separated by other paths with a colon.
