But I always download dmd from the official site and have no troubles. 
It works out of box. Your example above is a wrong mix of several ways 
to install dmd.

Thank you. Good to know because I'm not native English speaker.

Yeah, before the D comminity consisted of high professional members who 
can develop the language. Now when less professional people start 
appearing here they don't want to implement the features they want by 
themselves and when they hear 'do it yourself' they start complaining 
the community is toxic. Not at all. I do not blame these people of 
course, they are just users of the language not its developer. But it 
would be nice if they understand the situation.
