This is about a MacBook running on 10.10.5 whose disk has recently been repaired (to try to solve the present issue) using Disk Utility. I created an alias as follows:
$ cd ~/Desktop $ ls -ld drwx------+ 13 erwann staff 442 Jul 14 12:41 . $ touch foo.bar $ mkdir baz $ ln -s foo.bar baz $ ls -l baz total 8 lrwxr-xr-x 1 erwann staff 7 Jul 15 11:02 foo.bar -> foo.bar
Next, I use Finder to 'Show [the] original' associated with the alias created in 'baz'. I get:
The alias “foo.bar” can’t be opened because the original item can’t be found.
Any suggestion to fix this?
