I was wondering how to create a symbolic link in Ubuntu (12.04 LTS). I've done this before but this time it is a little different.
This command worked before.
user@desktop:/media/backup/folder$ ln -sv file.ods /home/user/file.ods
The last time I I created a file from my backup drive [harddisk].
Now I would like to create a symbolic link to a file present on a fileserver.
This is a virtual machine and probably a network connection to it is required. The fileserver (networkshare) is mounted at /media/fileserver.
I did try to use the same command as mentioned above, however, it create an empty file when opened it askes to be deleted because it is empty and useless.
When I do the command from above, it does not work. So, can someone help me out here?
