I have an HTC Glacier (MT 4G), and I'm trying to get to the point where i can compile the CM source. following this guide, Im at the step called "Copy Proprietary Files" but when I execute the command "./extract-files.sh" I get flooded with errors::

./extract-files.sh: 21: adb: not found
./extract-files.sh: 22: adb: not found
./extract-files.sh: 23: adb: not found

the ./adb implies that adb is NOT in the path. Try adding its location to your path or creating a symlink to adb in /usr/local/bin (that's what I did).

When you type "./adb devices" what directory are you in (try "pwd" if you don't know)? Add this directory to your global PATH environment variable (I'm not sure how to do this in Ubuntu). Otherwise, you can create a symlink: as root, "ln -s [path_to_adb] /usr/local/bin/adb" where path_to_adb is the complete path including the adb file itself (i.e. "/opt/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools/adb" in my case).

Its in ~/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools
when i try creating that symlink i get:
"ln: creating symbolic link 'usr/local/bin/adb': No such file or directory"

Code:
ln -s ~/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools/adb /usr/local/bin/adb
