Can't create project directory
« on: June 16, 2009, 10:20:36 pm »
I'm trying Code::Blocks for the first time. I tried to make an empty project called "lasik_codeblocks" in ~. I got this error message:
"Couldn't create the project directory:
~/lasik_codeblocks/"

Any idea why this is happening? I can make the directory fine with mkdir so it is not a permissions issue.

The ~ and environment-variables will not be expandend.

As workaround you can try the full path (just click the button with the three dots next to the "Folder to create project in:" text-control and chose the directory you want").
