Earlier today I tried fixing the problem by doing a complete removal of everything related to CAJA and then went back and reinstalled everything related to CAJA, still did not fix the problem ??? Is there a way that I can edit just the permissions on JUST/ONLY that one subfolder ? T...

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

I believe it is your file manager that is the software to control input of a name for a folder. Nemo if you're using Cinnamon. Caja if you're using MATE Thunar if you're using Xfce Where is the subfolder Spypoint located? You probably don't have the permissions to write to that folder, so you can't...

SOLVED FOR NOW - What software controls input of name for creation of new folders

I get the input box as shown of the screenshot for "Brown-1" (and also for every other folder on my hard drive) but do NO...

isn't Linux Mint supposed to be FREE OS ?

I thought Linux Mint was supposed to be FREE O/S ?

If so, why does it look like someone is selling it here:

Is it possible that this is a FAT problem ?

Is there a utility for verifying / fixing the FAT ?

Thanks.
Tried FAT check of disk utility, said nothing found, hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Maybe just rebooting might sort it out?
That, of course, was the first thing I tried, did not fix.

Attached if screenshot of untitled folder when done via file manager. Will not even let me rename the untitled folder.

Really strange that the problem is on only this one folder !!!

Thanks.

Re: problem creating folder

Yes, actually I just thought of that, works fine at terminal see new folder that I added at terminal for 2019-07-05 This tells me that there must be something amiss with the file manager application.

problem creating folder

For some strange reason I can no longer create a sub-folder under my /home/pictures/spypoint folder. When I attempt to do this, it just creates an empty folder (i.e. without a name), it does not give me the option of assigning a name to the new folder like it has always done in the past. I CAN creat...
