I don't have administration level, so I installed autojump according to the following step:

git clone https://github.com/wting/autojump.git
cd autojump
python install.py

Everything seems fine, and it tells me to add

[[ -s /fs/home/qqq/.autojump/etc/profile.d/autojump.sh ]] && source /fs/home/qqq/.autojump/etc/profile.d/autojump.sh

into bashrc. I did it and restart.

However, after typing j, it warns me:

-bash: /fs/home/qqq/.autojump/bin/autojump: Permission denied autojump: directory '' not found \n\n Try autojump --help for more information.

What is wrong? How to solve it?

  • What is j or in j? – Julie Pelletier Mar 21 '17 at 2:43

    Looking at it, you seem to be missing the only required argument, the directory. You should probably reread its documentation. Note that I see absolutely no good use for this tool but that's your business. – Julie Pelletier Mar 21 '17 at 2:51

    it's my understanding, only from reading the project's pages, that you're supposed to use j some-pattern-here, and not just a plain j as you did. What do you expect to happen with a bare j command? – Jeff Schaller Mar 21 '17 at 13:25

    @JeffSchaller Well, simply j is equivalent to cd -. I have test this on another linux – user15964 Mar 21 '17 at 13:29

    cd - is a shortcut for "cd to $OLDPWD" -- had you changed directories before running j? – Jeff Schaller Mar 21 '17 at 13:31
