Unable to open autodock from the ubuntu terminal using aliases

Hey everyone,

I have been getting the following error after typing the alias \”adt\” in the terminal:

/home/cristo/Downloads/MGLTools-1.5.6/bin/adt: 1: /home/cristo/MGLTools-1.5.6/bin/archosv: not found/home/cristo/Downloads/MGLTools-1.5.6/bin/adt: 156: exec: python: not found

Already tried solving this problem using this answer https://bioinformaticsreview.com/question/problem-launching-autodock-tools-from-ubuntu-terminal/ but I keep getting the same error.

Would be nice if someone could help me solve this error, please. Thank you in advance.

This error means that either python is not installed on your system or it is damaged.
Check for Python path:

$ which python

If it shows the Python path, then you have installed python on your system. If not, then install it as

$ sudo apt-get install python

or install version 3

sudo apt-get install python3

Now, check for Python path:

$ which python
0 $0.00
