user@laptop ~ $ sudo ln -s ~/Games/JA/openjk.i386 ~/Desktop/JA user@laptop ~ $ readlink -f ~/Desktop/JA /home/user/Games/JA/openjk.i386
As you can see, the symlink points to the file, but when I try to click on it it doesn't work. However, if I put the JA symlink in the same directory as the file it is linking to (in this case
~/Games/JA) it works. How do I make it work outside that directory (in the
Desktop, for example)?
