Thread: I can not delete, move or rename it.

  1. #1

    Default I can not delete, move or rename it.

    Hello!

    I use OpenSuse 12.3 - 64bit.

    I have a file and I can not delete, move or rename it.
    Appears a message like this:
    "The file or folder /home/rhus/Downloads/Il.mio.nome.+�.Nessuno_-_Mia.nomo.estas.Neniu.srt does not exist."

    I want to delete it.

    What can I do?

    Thank you!

    Given the special characters in what you posted, I'm making the assumption the issue is you need to backspace them in the file name given to the rm command.

    But an easier method: Try deleting it using a graphical file manager (dolphin)

    You can also find the inode of the file with the ls command, then use the find command and with the exec argument to rm it, like:

    ls -li filename (or just ls -li in the directory to show inodes for all files)
    2852738 -rw-r--r-- 1 you users 306711 Jul 2 18:03 filename
    $ find . -inum 2852738 -exec rm -f {} \;

    I tried to delete it using a graphical file manager (Dolphin), but I did not succeed.
    I tried, then use the "rm" command, so I had success, I removed the file.

    Thank you!
