Yes you have.

To run a program you need to tell the shell where the program is if
its not in the $PATH environment variable.To run a program from
current directory either write the full path to the program or append
"./" to say it's the current directory. So in your case use the full
path "/usr/local/bin/GCALDaemon/bin/GCALDaemon" or use current

Good luck
