I am trying to change my Ubuntu directory into "Desktop". I have tried running "cd ~/Desktop" however it responds with "-bash: cd: /home/mcosentino/Desktop: No such file or directory". When I am in my home directory and I run "dir" the only 3 directories it shows are "lammps lammps-stable_3Mar2020 stable_3Mar2020.tar.gz". Why can't I connect to my Desktop and/or Documents when I use cd?
If you are Italian the Desktop is called "Scrivania". Anyway if you open your terminal you have to type:
$ ls -al
The command ls means "list"
-a means show the hidden files and directories
-l it show also the permissions
In this way you can see all the file and directories in your home directory. The "dir" command come from Dos.
