I am running Linux Mint.I tried to copy a file with the file manager. It looked like it hung.
I can see the file in the directory with
-rwxr-xr-x 1 mike domain^users 20 Mar 1 08:57 'output (copy 1).txt'
It has char quotes around it. However, I cannot move it, remove it, cat, etc.
For any of these commands, I get a similar error message. For
rm *, I get:
rm: cannot remove 'output (copy 1).dat':No such file or directory.
I moved every other file out of the directory except this one and tried
rm * and
rm -f *. Same error.
$ rm "'output (copy 1).dat'" rm: cannot remove ''\''output (copy 1).dat'\''': No such file or directory
$ mv * test mv: cannot move 'output (copy 1).txt' to 'test': No such file or directory.
rmdir, it says the directory is not empty.
