I have some scripts that creates folders by using
... mkdir bin cd bin mkdir make ...
It works perfectly most of the time. However, for unknown reasons, sometime, the just-created folders appear as a file in Thunar, a really annoying problem.
I can navigate into the newly made folder using the command line and the traditional
cd, then run
ls and other CLI commands.
- do you know what causes the problem?
- do you know how to prevent it?
- is it a Xubuntu issue or it is related to other Ubuntu dis?
OS details: The problem was observed in XUbuntu 16.04, 16.10, 18.04 LTS and finally in 18.10.
