Thread: SSH/FuGu can't delete created directory?

  1. #1
    Default SSH/FuGu can't delete created directory?
    Hi guys I was SSH'ing my theme back into my phone and I accidentally created the com.apple.springboard folder inside my theme folder instead of inside my bundles folder but Fugu won't allow me to delete the folder. My theme works fine even with this extra folder in it but I didn't want any clutter in there. Am I missing a permission or something to be able to delete a directory I created on the phone? Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Derek

    rmdir -R com.apple.springboard

    If it says you don't have permission:

    sudo rmdir -R com.apple.springboard

    Where do I put that in? If its in Terminal I'm not familiar with it at all, I'm new to my mac.

    Ah, try using Transmit for the Mac. If that doesn't work, use Terminal (in Utilities folder) to long into the iPhone. You can use the same command but you'd need to put in the full pathname to the file.

    Have you got something inside the folder? Because FUGU doesnt seem to let me delete a folder if something is in there. I had to delete that something before I delete the folder.

    Yes, which is what the -R is for in the terminal command. Unix will not let you delete a folder that has contents in it.

    TaniBan/Eurisko - Yes I had my dock in the folder. I just went in and deleted the dock png and then it let me delete the folder. See I learned something new about Unix today!
    Thanks guys!

    Deleting Files and Folders

    To delete an item, select it and either press the Delete key on your keyboard or click the Delete button in the Toolbar.
    Tip: You can only delete files or empty folders. If you need to delete a folder containing other items, you must delete the items first, and then the folder.
