BOW (A Helper For Arch) Is Now Ready For DL

I have done the following:

I put the file: bow.sh in the usr/local/bin directory and made it executable.
I opened sudoers and added my user name "richard ALL=(ALL) ALL" directly under "root  ALL=(ALL) ALL"
I changed the terminal to the directory:  "cd /usr/local/bin"
the "ls -l" command shows one file in there: bow.sh in bright green. -rwxrwxrwx
I enter "sudo ./bow.sh"
It asks for the root password
I enter that.
I get nothing but my terminal prompt again.

Am I missing something? Or should I re-install Arch?

When you put it in a directory which is in your '$PATH' (which '/usr/local/bin' should be), then you do not need to 'cd' into the directory and execute it with './'. Simply writing 'bow.sh' will be enough, especially since I think it will call 'sudo' itself. Judging by the screenshots, you will also need 'dialog', which is not installed by default in arch.
