As a new user I ran into a snag when I tried to set a new default folder using “~” + "my/new/dir/name
the UI tells me that "The tilde character (~) can be used as a shortcut for
/home/username" BUT it turns out it means that literally and that the trailing forward slash “/” is not included. So when I used ~ I got “/home/usernamemy/new/dir/name” and not “/home/username/my/new/dir/name” as I had expected.
Is leaving off the trailing ‘/’ the desired behavior of ‘~’? and if so perhaps the tip might warn the user?
As a less than 1337 user (and a dyslexic to boot) I needed help to find the problem and having looked here and found that previous permisions problems had been directed to their OS I headed to Debian/Freedombox forum and I got help tracking down the problem there.
Now I know what to look for I’ll be more careful.
And thanks for the top notch thing that is Syncthing
