Unable to create data directory in Linux Mint

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I am trying to make the dictionary work on my Linux Mint. I opened it through the Menu then go to Office and then Dictionary to start it but there is an error on launching it. It says, "Unable to create the data directory '/home/lulz/.mate2/mate-dictionary': No such file or directory." How can I resolve this?

Unable to create data directory in Linux Mint


You can create or remove directory from the Linux terminal.

1.   Open the terminal from desktop icon or click CTRL+ALT+T.

2.   Navigate to the folder by using the command “cd” (Change directory) where you want to create the folder. E.g. cd <SPACE> /home/ABC/Desktop/

3.   Next give command mkdir <SPACE> <Folder Name>

4.   In order to remove directory you first need to propagate to the required folder by command cd.. and then type rmdir <SPACE><Folder Name> to remove.
