So I pulled up command prompt and did a (ls /kepler/) to search for the files (the parentheses are just to show the command, I didn't actually type them in the prompt) the files are being shown in the directory.
We are using unix, and I believe a free BSD (shows up when I boot the computer)
Also, I just did a ls and it showed the file, but when I did a find command, it said that the file or directory did not exist
Thanks for any help,
Have a look for your kepler elements using this command:
Not ls /kepler
The / looks for kepler in / the files are most likely in your home directory which is why you cant find them.
You didn't state where you downloaded them to so the command
pwd (print working directory will tell you where you are).
If you need to change directory then its cd example
will change to Downloads.
