I’m using Ubuntu 16.04, with all the latest updates as of 17/09/2018. I’ve followed the instructions on Debian Binary Packages Setup — Zcash Documentation 5.2.0 documentation and I get as far as the final bit where it’s installing and the message is
The following NEW packages will be installed: zcash 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 3,823 kB of archives. After this operation, 14.6 MB of additional disk space will be used. Get:1 https://apt.z.cash jessie/main amd64 zcash amd64 2.0.0 [3,823 kB] Fetched 3,823 kB in 3s (1,131 kB/s) Selecting previously unselected package zcash.

Processing triggers for man-db (2.7.5-1) ... Setting up zcash (2.0.0) ...
So it looks like everthing is OK, but then the next instruction is
Lastly you can run
./zcash-fetch-paramsto fetch the zero-knowledge parameters, and set up ~/.zcash/zcash.conf before running Zcash as your local user,
But there is no ./zcash-fetch-params file! In fact I can’t see anything new in my /home/me directory. So where do I go from here?
