For example, you have 3 directories in your disk and 2 of it are separated with a space.

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5$ ls -l

drwxrwx— 2 root plugdev 8192 2007-08-12 07:33 Linux

drwxrwx— 10 root plugdev 8192 2007-08-30 04:16 Linux Download

drwxrwx— 18 root plugdev 8192 2007-08-28 08:24 linux website


You can’t go inside your directory with a command below.

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5$ cd Linux Download

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5/Linux$ (the result)


Now, go back 1 level up.

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5/Linux$ cd ..

Then use ‘\’ after the ‘directory name’ and before the ‘space’.

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5$ cd Linux\ Download/ (type ‘cd Linux\ D‘ then press TAB key)


You can do another way.

Let’s go back 1 level up.

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5/Linux$ cd ..

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5$ cd Linux*Download (use ‘*’ (asterisk or star))

taufanlubis@zyrex:/media/hda5/Linux Download$

But, with the second method, you can’t use TAB key to get the full file name automatically.
