    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to install todo.txt on leopard 10.5.4
    I have downloaded the scrip there
    http://lifehacker.com/software/top/geek-to-live--readerwritten-todotxt-manager-173018.php
    - I did follow step by step the how to install the script.
    - when I type in a terminal the commands to launch the script todo (ie: todo add) , i get "command not found". I know that I need a hidden file called .todo in order for the script todo.sh to work. I cannot find it anywhere. I run " defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE" so I can see all my hidden files but still no .todo
    I hope someone can give me a hand, or may be direct me to a place.

    Cheers

    Riganta

    check your PATH shell variable

    Does typing "./todo add" work?

    If so, you probably have to add the directory that todo.sh is stored in to your $PATH.

    In my .bashrc file, this looks like:

    # my executables
    PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:.; export PATH

    (Change "bin" in the above to the path to your script. I have a folder called "bin" in my home directory for such scripts.)

    HTH
