    Exclamation Terminal Error! "bash: location: No such file or directory"

    Hey, I'm trying to root into a downloaded folder from my downloads in the terminal but no matter how many times I try, I keep getting the same error. "bash: location: No such file or directory".
    Any Help would be appreciated.

    Make sure there is a space between cd and /
    Example

    cd /home/justin/Downloads

    It is also case sensitive.

    Hi penguinprogrammer
    Try locating your folder first
    Code:
    find YOUR_DIRECTORY_NAME -xtype d
    YOUR_DIRECTORY_NAME should be replaced with your directory name.
    Also then cd to the directory using autocompletion feature. (You just need to use tab and list of possible folders in that folder will be displayed). Make sure if there is a folder with space in it, you need to type escape sequence for space
    eg: If you have a folder named untitled folder in your home directory, you need to type in a terminal with a slash in between
    Code:
    untitled\ folder

    an alternative to use of escape sequences is to enclose the directory name between quotes.

    RE: TOMBSTONEV2 Thanks, I tried it and it still gave me the error. I also capitalized the 'd' in downloads, but it didn't work. Is it different for .zip folders?

    You have to extract .zip folders first...

    but to get into downloads it's typically "cd ~/Downloads"

    Once extracted, then if there is a directory in Downloads, you can ~/Doanloads/yournewfolder or such. Note if you are already in downloads too, only "cd /yournewfolder" is necessary.
    When your entire life is measured in one moment, you change the concept of time.
