If you remove the \s and put the entire command on one line, then
everything should work.

For those not familiar with the particular shell syntax used there,
the \ at the end of each line (NOTE: that must be the very last
character on the line, with no space after it) tells the shell that
the command continues on the next line.  If you're typing the command
in by hand, as opposed to copying and pasting the lines with your
mouse, simply remove the \s and make sure there is at least one space
between each argument.
