    Lightbulb I'm newbie to Linux, I want to make a Link to folder, how to ?!?


    Hello all

    I'm newbie to Linux in general, I got installed Linux SusE 10 to use Cadence IC design tools on it...

    And I need to make a Link for a folder named "bin.lnx86" in the following path:
    /usr/local/cdstree/install/bin.lnx86

    I want to make the Link in the same place but with new name: "tools"

    Can anyone please tell me the steps i should follow to perform this ???

    But please put steps in easy format to understand, as i didn't deal with linux before, so i miss basics

    Thanks alot in advance,
    Ahmad,

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/local/cdstree/install/bin.lnx86 /usr/local/cdstree/install/tools
    That's all there is to it. I'd look at the manpage for ln if I were you to get some more info on the program:
    Code:
    man ln

    Thanks alot man
    i did it, and it worked well, but i notice a strange thing!

    shouldn't the Link (i.e. short cut) take a special icon with an arrow to its bottom right? as in Windows short cuts?! correct me if i am wrong
