Can someone explain this?

ls displays the symlink $ ls -l .config/blender lrwxrwxrwx 1 rain rain 29 Aug 7 13:48 .config/blender -> SpiderOakHive/config/blender/

but this fails $ ls -l .config/blender/ ls: cannot access .config/blender/: No such file or directory

Yet, the symlinked folder definitely exists according to this (empty newlines removed):

$ ls -lR SpiderOakHive/ SpiderOakHive/: total 4 drwxr-xr-x 3 rain rain 4096 Aug 7 04:13 config SpiderOakHive/config: total 4 drwxr-xr-x 3 rain rain 4096 Aug 7 03:32 blender SpiderOakHive/config/blender: total 4 drwxr-xr-x 3 rain rain 4096 Aug 7 03:32 2.75 SpiderOakHive/config/blender/2.75: total 4 drwxr-xr-x 2 rain rain 4096 Aug 7 03:32 config SpiderOakHive/config/blender/2.75/config: total 116 -rw-r--r-- 1 rain rain 115248 Aug 7 03:32 userpref.blend

I don't see anything off with the permissions and other symlinks seem to be working.

System:

$ uname -a Linux acidcloud 4.1.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Aug 3 21:30:37 UTC 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

It should point to ../SpiderOakHive/config/blender/ instead of SpiderOakHive/config/blender/

  • Or maybe even more ../s, I'm a little bit confused with your directory structure. – Behrooz Aug 7 '15 at 12:47
  • oh, thanks it works, I suspected it was something obvious. ...and it's even in the manpage, I feel so stupid now. – Rain Gloom Aug 7 '15 at 13:15
