Make a python script run in Terminal?

Wondering how can i run a script i installed which is called BillCipher and it says to run it the commend is python3 billcipher.py but the terminal gives me a error saying python3: cant open file ‘billcipher.py’: [Errno 2] No such file or directory, Now i did type sudo then the command but still gives me the same error. Somebody told me that id have to put it in bin in order for the terminal to recognize the script and open it ,because i have the directory of the file to my desktop. Can anyone lead me how to get it to open in the terminal by giving me specific instructions? Id appreciate any help Thank you :smiley:

Did you execute the command in the same directory where the file is located?

how does one do that exactly? Sorry im a beginner just learning here.

First, you identify your current working directory with pwd

Then you change your working directory accordingly with cd

You seem to be very new indeed. I should warn you that incorrect use of the tools in Parrot OS may cause you to end up with criminal charges. Be sure you know exactly what you’re doing.

May I suggest that you learn some Linux basics before you procceed with the more advanced stuff? Don’t try to sprint if you can’t stand up yet :wink:. I’m willing to guide you to a good starting point if you’d wish.
