Surely you can open terminal, and run the fastboot.exe through terminal. Then just enter the command you need?

My phone is unlocked from HTCdev..So my phone is S-ON.. I will have to flash boot.img whenever i need to flash a new ROM.. Will i have to follow the procedure what i did on windows exactly from the start?

Yes, each time you flash a custom ROM on the unlocked bootloader you will need to extract the boot.img and then flash it manually in FASTBOOT USB mode using

fastboot flash boot boot.img

If you are using Ubuntu, then the command would be:

sudo fastboot flash boot boot.img

sudo fastboot flash boot boot.img

This is what i did exactly(Ubuntu)

Placed the fastboot file in the home folder (Downloaded from HtcDev for ubuntu) and an extracted boot.img of the existing ROM

cd //home

just wanted to check whether its working i typed in terminal

sudo fastboot flash boot boot.img

Error line fastboot command not found
