I'm trying to move a file from a directory to another one and create a symlink but seem to be doing something wrong. Have done "man ln" and looked up info in coreutils but I don't seem to be able to get it right.
There are two files in ./home/jim/.config/banshee-1/ that I want to move to ./home/jim/Dropbox/banshee. I have created backups of both and created the new folder in Dropbox. see attached screen shots. I then run
jim@saturn ~ $ sudo ln -s ./home/jim/Dropbox/banshee/banshee.db ./home/jim/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db
ln: creating symbolic link `./home/jim/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db': No such file or directory
and get the above error message. Now I know symlinks do not need to be complete at the time of creation, but I'm not sure if I have done this right or not and if I try and read and write banshee.db at the original location if it will do it properly and efficiently. Is this a case where I should do a hardlink instead and have both files.
If I want to do this every time at start up, how do I automate the commands once I have them right?
