Post Total Validator [SOLVED]
Due to some problems with the total validatior site they have remove the option of automatically uploading files for validation therefore the Firefox plugin does not work as it used to. You have to do a install of their front end and work from there. I have done that and followed their instructions and the file is in my Download directory after following the instructions it installed in the download directory and I cannot get it to execute from a terminal window.

This is what I get upon trying to run it:

Steve@mepis-testing:~/Downloads/totalvalidatorbasic$ dir
commandline.jar dicts help lib mainstyle.css ReadMe.txt total_validator.sh
default_browser.sh dtds images License.txt ReadMe.html totalvalidator.jar
Steve@mepis-testing:~/Downloads/totalvalidatorbasic$ /total_validator.sh
bash: /total_validator.sh: No such file or directory
Steve@mepis-testing:~/Downloads/totalvalidatorbasic$

EDIT: /total_validator.sh is shown a executable.

It must be something simple I am missing.

EDIT EDIT: There was a way to mark the thread solved, but I cannot find it now. Also to put Icons on the subject line. :question:

Instead of Steve@mepis-testing:~/Downloads/totalvalidatorbasic$ /total_validator.sh

try

Steve@mepis-testing:~/Downloads/totalvalidatorbasic$ ./total_validator.sh

Notice the added period.

An explanation for people who might wonder what ./ represents in Linux:

./ is a shortcut for the "current path", just like ~ is a shortcut for home directory. In Linux when you launch a program it either have to be located in a folder that's listed in PATH, or you need to specify the full path to the executable (probably a security feature), so instead of writing the entire path to the folder you just type ./ before the file name (of course the file needs to be in the current folder).
