I extracted the information from an ISO Image and from Nautilus I could only see two folders, but from the terminal I can see the rest of the files and folders. These folders do not have the
. character in from of them to hide them from plain sight. When I try to "Show hidden files" in Nautilus, Nautilus closes/crashes itself and it does not show the hidden folders or files.
Somehow they are hidden without using the normal dot in the beginning of the filename. They have my user permission, but no way of seeing them from within Nautilus. I can interact with them, but the fact that they appear hidden when I can see them inside the ISO and after extracting them they disappear is what confuses me.
What permission or setting makes this folders appear hidden and does not let Nautilus show them and like I said before, trying to show them with the "Show hidden files" option crashes Nautilus and exits it, forcing me to have to open Nautilus again from the Launcher.
