    [SOLVED] save using terminal

    wow,

    I think this may be the most noobish question around but here goes.

    I am trying to save something in the /.gnome2 folder within my home directory.

    I'm used to macs so I would just use the gui to navigate to homefolder/.gnome2 and drop it in.

    I cannot see it on linux, just my empty default folders. WHY?

    I'm okay with this, I just need to know the syntax for saving a text (or any document to a folder through the good ol' terminal.

    thanks in advance

    nautilus hides folders whose names start with ".". However if you hit ctrl-h it will show them.

    What do you mean by save? The command you would use in the terminal are probably cp for copy or mv for move.

    To see the syntax for each command just type "man cp" or "man mv"
