Hello everyone! I'm a new Linux user running Lubuntu 12.04. I have recently encountered some strange behavior when using the terminal (LXTerminal, BASh). The terminal no longer accepts forward slash ( \ ) for path names. It works fine when I use backslash ( / ), but this annoys me - I don't want to get in the habit of doing it backwards! Oddly enough, it will echo forward slash when I use 'pwd' or use 'cd' with backslash. I don't know what caused this, or exactly when it started. I haven't really been messing with the shell config files; the only changes I have made in that regard are to append JAVA_HOME and PATH assignments to the '.profile' configuration file... and the problem is still there when I restore my backup copy of '.profile' and reboot. So, I am quite lost, but also very curious about this. Where might this behavior originate from, and what can I do to change it back? Thanks very much!
