If you start a terminal session, cd to the Basic4Android directory and
then run the command:

   ls -l Basic4android.lnk

and post a copy of the output. The colour used for the file name is
meaningful too, so:

- What colour is Basic4android.lnk shown in? 
  The usual Linux convention is that: 
  - a valid symbolic link is pale blue 
  - an invalid symbolic link, i.e. the file it points at doesn't exist, 
    is red.
  - a hard link to a file is the same colour as the file it links to,
    probably white or green. 

- If Basic4android.lnk is pale blue or red, what is it pointing to? 
  This is shown at the end of the line, e.g.

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 kiwi kiwi 10 Jan 11 15:47 target_sym -> target.txt

  where 'target_sym' is the name of the symbolic link and 'target.txt'
  is the file it points to.
