Re: What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

Well then, perhaps my version of Linux Mint Mate is somehow different from yours because I have been doing it for YEARS now and it works just fine !!! But thanks for the warning. For something that works just fine, you sure make a lot of posts (literally dozens?) about problems creating directories...

Re: What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

Also if you put a file in /home/Pictures/Spypoint/somefile, the file won't be in /home/wpshooter/Pictures/Spypoint. Well then, perhaps my version of Linux Mint Mate is somehow different from yours because I have been doing it for YEARS now and it works just fine !!! But thanks for the warning.

Boy, I sure would like to know what was causing this problem (other than, I just was not holding
my mouth correct) !!!
There was a permission and ownership problem with the Spypoint folder.
What caused this, do I need to be concerned about this happening again in the future ?

Re: What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

Now all of a sudden it just started working correct again - see the attached screenshot. See where it is prompting for the name of the new folder just under the icon of the folder, well when it was not working correctly it was placing the naming prompt at the end of the slot where is gives the 155 g...

Re: What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

you can't rename any folder within Spypoint? No, like I said it places the prompt in the WRONG place, when I type "test" at that prompt and hit return, nothing happens - name of folder stays the same. First, when in File Manager, go into Pictures and right-clik on Spypoint. On the Permissions tab, ...

Yes, try to rename any folder within Spypoint
Still does not function correctly !!!

When I try to create new folder instead of giving me the input prompt just under the folder, it places input prompt in the status line at the bottom of the window.

Re: What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

I did not see all of them, let me go thru them again. You shouldn't see all of your folders/files. We're just working on the Spypoint folder at this point. wpshooter@Linux-Mint-Desktop-19:~/Pictures/Spypoint$ stat -c '%a %A %U %G %n' * 775 drwxrwxr-x wpshooter wpshooter 2018-09-29 775 drwxrwxr-x wp...

Re: What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

Run this command exactly as printed (copy and past it to the Terminal) to change the ownership of all folders and files under Pictures: sudo chown -R -v $USER:$USER $HOME/Pictures Now check your subfolders in Pictures to see if they have an X on them or not. Right-click on one of them and see if th...

Re: What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

It is located at /home/Pictures/Spypoint Thanks. Your Pictures folder should be in /home/wpshooter, not /home. (If your username is wpshooter) It is, I am just referencing /home instead of /home/wpshooter. And as I said, the function works just great/fine on every other place on the hard drive, exc...
