This question already has an answer here:

Under the usr/bin directory, I have 45 levels of X11 directories, which are all duplicates of each other. Can anyone explain why this is happening, and can I delete the intermediate ones, or will this break some path info somewhere?

  • I have that too. I have no idea why, but I do not think deleting them is a good idea. – Pilot6 Aug 16 '16 at 18:09
  • The previous answer noted they are symbolic links, but does NOT explain what created them, or why they keep reproducing. Also, I am not sure I agree with that previous answer. Any way I can verify they are symbolic links? – CarloPel Aug 16 '16 at 21:40
