Ubuntu what is wrong with this file directory pathname?

2012-10-01  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


NOTE: I figured out my problem described below. PLEASE DISREGARD THIS THREAD. Thanks!

I'm a newbie to Linux, so please go easy on me. :-)

I am so very close to executing a small Python script a friend wrote for me, but something with the directory path in the following line is buggy:

BATCH_TEXT_FILE = '/home/GWBush-ubuntu/Desktop/sampleCSV.txt'

Just a few notes:
(1) The directory structure in the line above is definitely correct, because I executed the Python script using the same path! (both the Python script and the filename above are in Desktop)
(2) The file sampleCSV.txt is definitely in that end directory, I'm lookin' at it right now in Desktop.

Do I have an syntax error there above?
