Hi there, I am new to linux. I am trying to install a software. Readme file says to:

"Make a copy of the file to a location in your manual system"

What does it mean by "manual system"?

Thank you for any help

Hello @andrew_s_2022,
Welcome to Linux.org forum.

Which distro and what software are you trying to install?
I can only guess what they may mean by Manual system. There in not really anything called that in most Linux Distros.
So give us a bit more to go on.

It sounds like it might mean to copy the file into your home directory as opposed to the directories where the system files are held. However, as kc1di has mentioned, it's best if you provide more details if you'd like more precise assistance.
