I just upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04.2 LTS and opened up a terminal to find a handful of my home directory contents. Basically only Videos/ and a few files see image. However the files and folders are all still there. Autocomplete does not work if I start typing Documents/, but if I do
ls Documents/ the content is all there.
The files manager also shows other folders in the side tab, which contain all the relevant files, but the home directory is still reduced:what my file manager looks like.
Here is the content of
# This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update # If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're # interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run. # Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped # homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an # absolute path. No other format is supported. # XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Downloads" XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Templates" XDG_PUBLICSHARE_DIR="$HOME/Public" XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Documents" XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/Music" XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Pictures" XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Videos"
User permissions of the visible and invisible content all seem identical. This is really bizarre:
guillermo@guillermo-TECRA-A40-C:~$ ls gerrit.ods noise_nuisance_log.docx print.pdf ranking_Cg_rank_0001_to_00-1.pdf scripts v6_BSM_Coupling.tar.gz Videos guillermo@guillermo-TECRA-A40-C:~$ mkdir Pictures mkdir: cannot create directory ‘Pictures’: File exists
Any ideas? :_(
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
echo $HOME /home/guillermo
