Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Try this: Install the coreutils package again. If it says it is already installed, uninstall it. Then, install it again. Your tools might be compromised, and giving you misleading output. After you do that, make a directory somewhere, and move all the files in /home/zuki/Desktop to the directory you made, mv Desktop/* /directory/. Do ls -la in /home/zuki/Desktop and see what it says. If the file is still there try rm -rf *. If it isn't there, check in the new directory. If it's in the new directory you know it is a real file. That square with the "0243" in it is a Latin capital letter B with a slash in it. You can find that with charmap, copy it to the clipboard, paste it into terminal, and use it to identify the file.
