Also, try using <tab> to autocomplete and make sure you are getting the path correct. For example, sudo ln -s animacion<tab> /media/myuser/nameofdevice/myfolder<tab>. If you use this, you will be able to confirm the paths are exactly correct as Ubuntu will not autocomplete incorrect paths.

@LiveWireBT not likely, I've had them close my questions which involve programming. If we move it there they'll close it as off-topic. Best bet is stackoverflow.com (if we do move it).

Can you please post some of the relevant parts of that answer here, in case the other question is closed or edited? That ensures your answer remains helpful.

comment symbolic link in /media
Should be no problem. Without seeing the command you typed or your error message all I can suggest is using the correct format ln -s source-file symlink. So for example you would use ln -s /media/myuser/nameofdevice/myfolderA/FILENAME.FILETYPE /media/myuser/nameofdevice/myfolderB/

comment Why does the host key verification fail in “connect to server” utility?
+1 for recommending to edit known_hosts rather than deleting it, which I see far too often.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 Can't login to some secure website logins
I just tried logging in as user 'test' and get the error message "We're sorry. The User ID, Account Number or Password was incorrect. Please try again. (6300, -6302)". Also, I can see the site uses JavaScript (not Java) to display the login box. Do you have JavaScript disabled, and do you get an error message which may help troubleshoot this further?

comment How to force subtitles in VLC to display at bottom
@cipricus This question has been closed for nearly two years, with OP last seen about six months ago. It's probably best to ask a new question which focuses on your slightly different point, which will have much better odds of getting a good answer. Good luck.
