    But it should be visible with -a option.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Right, but he hasn't run ls -a on /home/Shahin. He has run ls on /home/Shahin with the -l option but not -a yet.

    Hi guys, sorry for my absence (Supervisor is on my back about deadlines)

    here is the output for ls -a /home/Shahin

    .                      .dmrc            .gstreamer-0.10    .qt
    ..                     Drivers          .gtkrc-1.2-gnome2  .recently-used.xbel
    3DDesktop              .eggcups         .ICEauthority      .redhat
    .bash_history          .evolution       .kde               .serverauth.4447
    .bash_logout           .face.icon       .kderc             .ssh
    .bash_profile          .fonts.conf      .lesshst           .superkaramba
    .bashrc                .gconf           .local             .thumbnails
    CLHEP-          .gconfd          .mcop              .Trash
    clhep-  geant4           .mcoprc            .viminfo
    .config                .gnome           .metacity          .Xauthority
    .dbus                  .gnome2          .mozilla           .xcompmgrrc
    Desktop                .gnome2_private  .nautilus
    I think that the 'home.desktop' in /home/Shahin/desktop is the extra home on the desktop. I think that when you log on to KDE it creates (home.desktop, System.desktop, Trash.desktop) in that directory. I deleted the trash can but Iam a little worried about deleting 'home'.

    ls -a ~/Desktop
    .  ..  .directory  Home.desktop  System.desktop
