I often forget the syntax for making symlinks in Ubuntu, even though they are incredibly useful. To stop myself from forgetting and help everyone else out, I’ll make a quick mention of it here.
ln -s target link_name
From wikipedia’s article on Symbolic Links, it is explained that the target should point to the folder you want to be linked to. It can be either an absolute or relative path. The second parameter is link_name. It is optional, if you don’t supply it, the symlink will be the name the deepest folder’s name. Otherwise, you can customize it.
Symlinking is something I wish for in Windows, but at least if I can do it on Ubuntu, I’ll be happy.
