comment sudo source: command not found
many thanks. that is helpful. so when I added sudo -s to the top of the file it just changed the current bash terminal to root? (and then stopped trying to execute the file). just trying to understand why sudo -s did not work

comment Can I deactivate the broadcom driver if I have a Realtek wireless card?
@Braiam I thought that was not the case? I asked about this on these forums and got a different answer. Can you help clarify? unix.stackexchange.com/questions/116154/…

comment keyboard shortcut to jump cursor to prompt?
@Vi. Thanks. It is a bit hard to read your comment. I should type "git add" then press the esc key, then press the comma key, then press period key?

comment How can I change my bash prompt to show my working directory?
@terdon when I run source ~/.profile it changes the path properly in the current terminal. But when I open a new terminal then I still see "abram's mac book air" etc. I tried adding source ~/.profile to both the .profile and .bashrc files but still no luck. Any ideas?

comment How can I change my bash prompt to show my working directory?
thanks. I made that change. Now I see: Abrams-MacBook-Air-3:tmp abramhandler$ pwd; /Users/abramhandler/tmp Abrams-MacBook-Air-3:tmp abramhandler$ .... I want to only show the part that says "tmp" for my prompt. How do I hide the rest? I want to hide the "abramhandler" and "Abram's-MacBook-Air-3" parts
