What do you mean by "can't see"? root will always be able to see
anything (unless he permits users to mount encrypted file-systems).

Please explain what you're trying to achieve.


Cheers,
Tink

OK, thanks, got that :}

Try
sh ~rob/Desktop/NVIDIA-Linux-<blurb>

If you're using a WM I don't have handy and only d/led
one driver try:
sh `find ~rob -name "NV*run"`



Cheers,
Tink
