Downloading an exercise

Dear friends,

I use Linux Mint and VS Code.
I have already installed CLI by following the installation guide.

Is there only one specific path in which I am able to download an exercise?

I am asking this because when I type …

exercism download --exercise=say --track=python

… from the path of my “exercism folder”, I see as an output:

zsh: command not found: exercism

I have already tried to download the exercise from the same path I downloaded and installed the CLI (and also from ~/) , but I see the same error message.

Kind regards,


The setup instructions set up your PATH for bash. If you’re using zsh, you need to ensure the PATH is set up in the zsh config. See too this related thread.

Thanks, Isaac!

I will follow the solution from the related thread you mentioned above.
