Home.desktop?


Hello, I"m on a command line on my account, and to install zlib, i go under su root. There I try to access Home.desktop under the desktop directory and it says 'bash: cd: Home.desktop: Not a directory', when it appears under dir. Help!

Thx

Home.desktop is a launcher used by KDE and GNOME. It is a file, not a directory.

Code:
cd /home/username
as normal user.
Code:
cd /root
as root.
