wrong folder

Post by bluvisnu » Mon Jul 25, 2016 5:17 pm

Hi, i'm trying to make my first app ever, i followed all the instructions of the videos and slides until "deleting a note" twice to compare my code and i don't find where is my mistake but the scrolling list field where i should have the notes i am writing is showing the home folder of my computer first and then another one if i clic "next" and come back and i can't save any notes and no folder is being created in the document folder of my PC, i am starting to think that it may be because i am on Linux and live code may not have the necessary permission to write into documents. or maybe it is something else... Can you please help me ?

From the dictionary entry for "specialfolderpath" it looks like the only "special" folders you can access on linux are:
Home: The current user's home directory (e.g. "/home/fred")

Desktop: The current user's desktop (e.g. "/home/fred/Desktop")

Temporary: For storage of temporary files (typically "/tmp")
