    FileSys Problem

    Hello! I'm new to Mandriva (Mandriva One install) and I'm having a strange problem. The copy & paste feature works in every respect except one: the Filesystem. When I open filesys I have NO paste option. Whether I try a right-click menu, the browser Edit menu or Ctl-v, I cannot paste. Is this normal in Mandriva? If not, is there anything I might try to fix this? If it is normal, then I have a command-line question. In Terminal, I know how to copy single (or a few) files from one directory/folder to another. Also how to copy a directory to another directory. But how do I copy all the files IN a source dir to a destination dir without copying the source directory itself? (I definately don't want to have to type in the names of 30 files.) Thanks!

    move to the source dir

    # cd /source/dir

    once in source dir

    #cp * /destination/dir

    now all files in /source/dir should be copied to /destination/dir

    Thanks Explorer! Your instructions worked perfectly. Now I can use Wine to open a program.

    You can try this command..

    cp -rf <source> <destination>
