did you cd into the jin directory and run the command?
it worked that way before.
could you post the output of
ls -l /media/sdb1/Linux/jin
did you unpack the program as yourself or with a sudo ?
The manual is your friend.Imagus wrote: I have no idea what the ls-command does
LS(1) User Commands LS(1)
ls - list directory contents
ls [OPTION]... [FILE]...
List information about the FILEs (the current directory by default).
A wise choice.Boo wrote: I avoid putting spaces in file and directory names.
Absolutely correct. Just a minor addition which I put here in the hope that it will benefit others who maybe don't know it: The thing with the backslashes is sometimes called "to escape ..." in some texts. So if someone writes "you have to escape the spaces in the file name" ==> he means that you should convert the empty space in a file name from " " into "\ " (as in Boo's second example above). The backslash here serves as "escape" signal and tells UNIX-like shells "OK, whatever weird character follows after the backslash -- just ignore it please and take it 'as is' ..."Boo wrote: if there is a space in a file/dir name you have 2 options:
put the whole path in quotes
dereference the space with a backslash.
eg for you origional ls you could have done:
ls -l "/media/sdb1/Linux/jin chess/jin-2.14.1/jin"
ls -l /media/sdb1/Linux/jin\ chess/jin-2.14.1/jin
