Unhappy Trimmomatic adapter file error

I am having a problem getting trimmomatic to find the adapter file. I have tried all the options I can think of for the path, and put the file in the trimmomatic folder but still get a file not found error message. I can't spot any syntax errors, so can anyone help me?

error: /adapters/Truseq3-PE-2.fa (No such file or directory)

I think it searches for that file from your current directory (not from the trimmomatic folder). You could put the adapter file in the same folder as your raw reads, then change that part of your command to the following:
