It's an odd problem in that when I browse the home folder I see the directory 'Jquery' however when I use the command line nothing appears. I have used the commands ls | less, find . -iname jQuery, etc however no result is returned.

  1. Why does this occur?
  2. How can I view it using the command line?

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Maybe the folder is hidden? Try ls -la –  gentlesea Oct 14 '12 at 8:18

You mention Jquery and jQuery, these are different names, case matters. –  RedGrittyBrick Oct 14 '12 at 9:32
    
@Red - Unless you use -iname with find, which he did. @PeanutsMonkey - why don't you right click on that folder and see its properties (type, location etc)... maybe there's something special about it. –  don_crissti Oct 14 '12 at 17:58
    
@gentlesea - That's very odd indeed. It does now appear however when I attempt to access it via cd jQuery, it returns a message saying there is no such file or directory. This raises a few questions. 1) What attributes do I need to look at when looking at hidden directories via the command line 2) How do I unhide it? 3) Why can I access the hidden directory? 4)Lastly why does the find command not locate it? –  PeanutsMonkey Oct 15 '12 at 5:45
