I can't see a tar I exported from Docker on Nautilus unless I sudo xdg-open the directory it's in, even though it's visible with non-sudo ls and the permissions appear to be in order:

ls -lha output: enter image description here

This is what Nautilus shows: enter image description here

The file, however, IS visible through Nautilus if I use sudo xdg-open . (Image snipped for lack of reputation)

I run Docker using sudo, I guess that has something to do with it.

Using CTRL+H to show hidden files doesn't work either.

  • Try running sudo chmod 0777 get-sentiment.tar and then look in Nautilus again. – Android Dev Aug 22 '16 at 19:58
  • Thanks, didn't work. Still can't see it with xdg-open . but can see it with sudo xdg-open . – Hunterjet Aug 22 '16 at 20:02

Restarting the system worked. Must've had something to do with refreshing log in credentials?
