Kuldeep:

The commands in the manual are printed correctly; however, what you have written is NOT what is entered there.

PLEASE consult some resources on how to use Linux/unix systems; you’ll learn a lot, and will save a lot of time because you won’t need to wait several hours for someone to tell you that the problem is you’ve inserted a space where you shouldn’t have.

There is probably a "blank space" between your "../" and "../src/lmp_linux"
