I am experiencing strange behavior on my Mac. When I create a symbolic link with command ln -s nothing happens and when I do listing a directory no symbol link appears. So I tried creating the symbolic link again but I got the error "File exists".

Do you know where the problem is?

Please check if you havent switched files in between. See this manual. https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/115646/how-can-i-create-a-symbolic-link-in-terminal

  • I think you made your links inside the folder paper-works. look at it – Bjørson Ålmer Mar 18 '17 at 16:50
  • Your post needs to be expanded. A good answer includes specific instructions (not just links to them) and an explanation as to how or why the answer addresses the OPs question. Please edit your post to adequately address both of these elements. – Twisty Impersonator Mar 18 '17 at 21:06
