    Question Can't access folder /user/bin


    Successfully installed Adobe Photoshop and MS Office 2000, I can't access the /usr/bin folder, where manually installed program stores the bin file there. It says something like "crash" and "bug".

    Is this because the installation of Windows programs?

    This happens with two computers which have Xandros OC and Photoshop and MS Office installed by CrossOver.

    Re: Can't access folder /user/bin

    After restarting the computer, I can access the /usr/bin, but only for the first time. When I close the file manager and try to open the /usr/bin again, the KDE Crash handler gives alert "The application Xandros Manager crashed and caused the signal 11 (SIGSEGV)."

    Try with console I get this:

    user@PTBN1:~$ cd /usr
    user@PTBN1:/usr$ cd /bin
    user@PTBN1:/bin$



    Thanks for the help

    bash: /user/bin: No such file or directory

    Sorry mistype...

    It is:
    user@PTBN1:~$ cd /usr
    user@PTBN1:/usr$

    user@PTBN1:/usr$ cd /bin
    user@PTBN1:/bin$

    user@PTBN1:/bin$ cd /usr/bin
    user@PTBN1:/usr/bin$



    Before crash the file manager is trying to open /usr/bin and show the file, I can see the files' icon is about to show but only for a second.

    If you installed Photoshop and MS Office they won't be installed in /usr/bin and indeed should not be. They will have been installed in Crossove so you should check your Crossover folders in your home directory. Check for CXOffice and .cxoffice.
