No Home Directory...?

For the Lecture "Installing the mongo shell (OSX/Linux), the Professor instructed that the files be saved to the home directory - for some reason, I do not have the option to save onto the home directory, only my desktop. Could someone assist me with this?

Thing as long as you know where you save the files so you can add to the path, you should be go. Hope someone else can help as well.


I agree with Ashok, but I would add that if there is some place where you should be able to write that should be your home no? You can try to change permissions ( chmod u+rwx ) or copy from the Desktop (are you sure that was your home? whoami ).

I appreciate the feedback. I’ve saved the files to my desktop so I will try to ensure the paths lead back to there.
