I'm having a bit of trouble with my directories linking. As I am still a beginner at Linux in general, I don't know what I did but i stumbled upon my issue when just creating a directory.
When just entering in a command such as, "mkdir ~/Desktop filename" it appears in both my "~/" folder as well as my "~/Desktop" folder, but not on the desktop itself. However, if I right-click on the desktop and create a folder, it will show up.
Also, after entering in "mkdir ~/Desktop filename" i get the following error in terminal.
xxxx@xxxxxx:~$ mkdir ~/Desktop filename
mkdir: cannot create directory `/home/xxxx/Desktop': File exists
Since the file is being created in the desktop directory, it keeps copying the file into the home directory too.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
