how to hide folders in ubuntu

Hi,


You can just add "." in the beginning of your file/folder (e.g .mystuff)
If you want to hide files and folders without renaming them:

Create a file named ".hidden" (without the quotes, of course) in the directory containing the files/folders you want to hide

If you can't see the file, press Control-H or go to View->Show Hidden Files

Open up the file in the text editor (I had to do this as root for some reason, you may not need to)

Add the name of a file or folder you want to hide

Save the file, exit the text editor, and open or refresh Nautilus (F5)

You should not be able to see the file or folder
