No action after running rails generate controller Sessions command

Hi, I am new to RoR and looking into this tutorial
(http://www.railstutorial.org/book/sign_in_out#cha-sign_in_sign_out) on
implementing a sign-in page. When I run this command: “rails generate
controller Sessions --no-test-framework” the rails program just gives me
the command line arguments again. Thanks for any help!

Hi Colin, thanks for your answer. It is Rails Version 4.0.2. The command
is the one above the output are rails usage options:
“Usage:
rails new APP_PATH [options]
…”

Thanks

What operating system are you using and which version of rails (use
rails -v to check)?

Please copy/paste the command you type and the response so that we can
see exactly what it says. Depending on your OS you may have to use
ctrl shift C to copy from the terminal.

Please quote the previous message when replying so that it is easier
to follow the thread. If you look at my question you will see that I
asked you to copy/paste the complete terminal display, including the
command you typed. Please do that (don’t re-type it, copy/paste is
the only way we can check for typos). No need to copy after the
“Usage” line however.

Make sure you are in the top level folder of the application you have
already created when you do that.

Also please copy/paste the command and the result of rails -v.

Also you have not told us which operating system you are using. We
cannot easily help if you do not answer questions.

When replying insert your answers after each of my questions, then you
will not forget to answer one of them. Thanks

I am running on Ubuntu. I think I am missing some code as I am running
this command in an empty directory. The book says to check out some code
(“git checkout master” and “git checkout -b sign-up”) but I did not find
the URLs for these … do I need them in order to run the “generate
controller” command?

Thanks

Yes, you are missing the rails application. You should have got to
this chapter via the preceding chapters. You can’t just jump into the
middle of the tutorial, you must start from the beginning.

I removed Ruby and then reinstalled Rails and then got Rails version
3.2.16. but the same behavior when running the command.
