digitalmars.D.learn - Configuring Phobos from the 1-click installer

After using the 1-click Ubuntu installer, I'm having trouble 
figuring out how to import standard library functions for Phobos. 
I get the message:

Error: module io is in file 'std/std/io.d' which cannot be read
import path[0] = /usr/include/dmd/phobos
import path[1] = /usr/include/dmd/druntime/import

Sorry for such a basic question, but I am new to linux. Do I need 
to modify my path, or is Phobos just not located in the right 
directory?

Judging from the repeated stds up there I think you put a dot before io: import std.std.io; // <-- WRONG The second dot should not be there. Do this instead: import std.stdio; // <-- correct Ali

Thanks, I also found that I need to include the flag -I/usr/include/dmd/phobos to get it to compile. I tried doing: export PATH=$PATH:/usr/include/dmd/phobos but apparently I still need the -I flag. Is there another way to get around this?

You can use an IDE, that's what I did anyway

Does your /etc directory contain dmd.conf file? You can add standard flags there Example of dmd.conf: [Environment] DFLAGS=-I/usr/include/dmd/phobos -I/usr/include/dmd/druntime/import

Yes, my dmd.conf file already has those paths.

PATH environment variable is not related at all with phobos2 sources paths. All Linux packages (Ubuntu too) includes "-I/usr/include/dmd/phobos" on /etc/dmd.conf configuration file. If you need to explicit pass this argument to dmd compiler, may be due to several reasons. - You've edited your "/etc/dmd.conf" file. - You've created a new "dmd.conf" on your current directory, on you home directory or on dmd command directory (/usr/bin/). Any "dmd.conf" file on these places, overrides "/etc/dmd.conf" Take a look at: $ cat /etc/dmd.conf Regard, -- Jordi Sayol

 Take a look at:
 $ cat /etc/dmd.conf

 Regard,
I didn't find any extra dmd.conf files, but I found that adding #!/usr/include/dmd/phobos to the top of my D program solved the problem to my satisfaction. Thanks so much for your help.

It really does seem like you have an extra dmd.conf that's being loaded. Type dmd -v abc.d - The first few lines should include what config it's using.
