This looks to me like a typo in the terminal. It's executed the two
lines as one command (see the continuation character '>' and the error
message. Did you type in the "cd '/Users/..../'" or did you copy/paste
it? If the latter I think it's using the wrong quote characters which
would cause this problem.

Try typing in:

cd '/Users/greggarthurevansgmail.com/Desktop/self/'


Control.app/Contents/Resources/Self.app/Contents/MacOS/Self' -s

This assumes your username is "greggarthurevansgmail.com" otherwise
replace that in the command above with your actual username.
