I have a terminal open with prompt in /home - thus: ~/$.
ls -a shows all the contents of my own home file, including Documents.
That referred to a terminal looking at /home in Daryna, while my screen was looking at /home in Celena. That's where I want to operate.
Now my terminal shows the prompt: /media/sda6/theo/Documents$
I have File Browser open showing sda6 which is the partition allocated to /home - it shows /lost+found and /theo (me, the only user).
/theo is open showing, among all the other folders and files, Documents, a folder containing 4 items.
Documents also is open, and shows one folder (62 items) and 3 files - 1 pdf & 2 odt.
The original problem was that I entered cd /Documents, and the prompt duly changed to:
~/Documents$ - and then a command ls -a produced the response, only:
with no trace of the folder or 3 files.
Now with my terminal correctly addressed the command: ls -a shows the 4 items in Documents, thus:
theo@TJT5Daryna:/media/sda6/theo/Documents$ ls -a
. .. c_xls.pdf GdnITMWJ.odt Local FoldersI4TbkCel man-rsync.odt_0.odt
One of these is the folder named: Local FoldersI4TbkCel. To access this in a command line it is of course necessary to replace the space with ? or * but the command:
less /Local*FoldersI4TbkCel | lpr
produces the response:
/Local*FoldersI4TbkCel: No such file or directory
lpr: Error - stdin is empty, so no job has been sent.
So - essentially, the problem remains. I need to list the contents of that folder. Of course I can see it on the screen if I open it.
I shall be most grateful for advice.
