bekepart@bekepart-System-Product-Name:~/Downloads$ unzip -d /home/bekepart/Desktop
creating: /home/bekepart/Desktop/cucc/
creating: /home/bekepart/Desktop/cucc/gyak5/
creating: /home/bekepart/Desktop/cucc/gyak5/gverem/
extracting: /home/bekepart/Desktop/cucc/gyak5/gverem/  
inflating: /home/bekepart/Desktop/cucc/gyak5/gverem/megfordit.adb

etc.etc puts many lines of this kind of stuff but on my desktop I end up with an empty "cucc" folder.

edit: thank you for the comments, I tried a few things, seems like the extraction actually happens(ls shows the files) so i guessed its an updating issue, i pressed F5 in the file manager, and voilá there are the files.

I repeated the process out of curiosity, and it again forgot to update the "file explorer" no matter how many times i reopen that file explorer window("cucc"). From now on i should press F5 every time i visit a folder(?) I guess its really something for the OS to do. Any idea, what causes the problem?

Can you extract it using GUI? – green Apr 24 '13 at 17:11
Please open a terminal and run the command ls ~/Desktop/cucc/ Also, any error messages at the end of the extraction? – bodhi.zazen Apr 24 '13 at 17:12
You can upload all the output (from the beginning to the end) in this site and then link the resulting link here. – Lucio Apr 24 '13 at 17:25
