Well I managed to find the barnyard2.conf but now I seem to be having an issue when I try the following commands

# /usr/local/bin/snort -q -u snort -g snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth0 &
# /usr/local/bin/barnyard2 -c /etc/snort/barnyard2.conf -d /var/log/snort -f snort.log -w /etc/snort/bylog.waldo -G 
/etc/snort/gen-msg.map -S
/etc/snort/sid-msg.map -C /etc/snort/classification.config &

When I run the second command, I get this error

root () SENTRY:/usr/src/barnyard2-master/schemas# /usr/local/bin/barnyard2 -c /etc/snort/barnyard2.conf -d 
/var/log/snort -f snort.log -w /etc/snort/bylog.waldo -G /etc/snort/gen-msg.map -S /etc/snort/sid-msg.map -C 
/etc/snort/classification.config &
[2] 7694
root () SENTRY:/usr/src/barnyard2-master/schemas# -bash: /usr/local/bin/barnyard2: No such file or directory

I looked for the /usr/local/barnyard2 directory, but there is nothing there.

Hi there again,

So I was directed to use this document http://s3.amazonaws.com/snort-org/www/assets/167/deb_snort_howto.pdf, which to 
its credit has worked well so far.  Right now I am stumped on this section.

4. Install & configure Barnyard2

# cd /usr/src && wget https://github.com/firnsy/barnyard2/archive/master.tar.gz

# tar -zxf master.tar.gz && cd barnyard2-*

# autoreconf -fvi -I ./m4 && ./configure --with-mysql && make && make install

# mv /usr/local/etc/barnyard2.conf /etc/snort

# cp schemas/create_mysql /usr/src

Hi Shaun,
By default you should find barnyard2.conf in /usr/local/etc
