migration tool install problems

Hi,

I am having issues with the "ant-salesforce.jar: No such file or directory" when installing the migration tool on my mac.

i followed these instructions from the web.  Apparently, there have been a lot people having the same problem.  But this didn't work.

Download the Force.com Migration tool.
Unzip the files.
Open the terminal and goto the unzipped folder (/Download/salesforce_ant_api version)
Copy and Paste this: sudo cp ant-salesforce.jar /usr/share/ant/lib/ant-salesforce.jar
Enter your password.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi , 


If you have the Force.com IDE - ANT would been configured by it as it uses ANT internally to migrate, See below blogs

Download the Force.com Migration tool.
Unzip the files.
Open the terminal and goto the unzipped folder (/Download/salesforce_ant_api version)
Copy and Paste this: sudo cp ant-salesforce.jar /usr/share/ant/lib/ant-salesforce.jar
Enter your password.
