No command 'diamond' found Error

Hi, installed diamond on to my linux server using the binary download method. however when attempting to run diamond makedb --in nr.faa -d nr or even diamond help. I receive the error No command diamond. I attempted compiling from the source but that didn't work as well. Any assistance or direction would be greatly appreciated.

For a local copy of diamond you need to prepend ./ to your call like this:

tar xzf diamond-linux64.tar.gz
