Please always anser to the mailinglist!

You first need to set the correct environment.

# INSTANCE=yourinstance
# export KOHA_CONF=/etc/koha/sites/${INSTANCE}/koha-conf.xml
# export PERL5LIB=/usr/share/koha/lib

Then as Linux user "root" run

# /usr/share/koha/bin/link_bibs_to_authorities.pl


# cd /usr/share/koha/bin
# ./link_bibs_to_authorities.pl

However I also recommend you look into the options.

# /usr/share/koha/bin/link_bibs_to_authorities.pl --help

After a successful test I usually use these options:

# /usr/share/koha/bin/link_bibs_to_authorities.pl -l -v --commit=1000

Hope this helps.
