can't access Ubuntu One folder through the command line
Hi Linux Community,
I'm a complete and utter newbie on Linux -- my noob-ness really can't be underestimated. To illustrate, I'm at the stage of using tutorials that introduce me to commands such as "ls" and "mkdir". I was also dropped on my head a lot as a baby, resulting in an inability to parse jargon-laden, acronym-heavy communication.
Anyway, here's my problem: I recently uninstalled Windows 7 and installed Ubuntu 12.04. Ubuntu has a free cloud service called "Ubuntu One" of which I'm sure a lot of ya'll're familiar with. Since my Dropbox account is almost full, I'd like to use the Ubuntu One cloud account (I use two computers, a laptop and a desktop at home, and I'd like for them to sync).
I can, of course, access the cloud service through the gui, but I need to access it through the command line so that I can compile C programs saved on it.
On my home directory (or whatever is the name of the directory that has stuff like "Desktop" and "Documents" on it -- the directory that I'm on as soon as I open the command line), the directory Ubuntu One is listed just like that, "Ubuntu One", in blue, caps "U" and "O", with a space between the two words.
When I try to navigate to the directory ("cd Ubuntu One"), I receive the error message "bash: cd: Ubuntu: No such file or directory", likewise, I can't rename it because of the space in between "Ubuntu" and "One".
Does anyone know how to access a directory that is two words with a space in between them?
No worries; Enjoy
Incidentally, '.' is also a safe char to use in filenames etc.
Many other chars are allowed ( a little google challenge for you; find out which chars are legal to use in filenames), but they can cause issues like yours, so be conservative, at least for now.
