~/Library directory hidden in "Lion"


(In the "for the more curious section, p 276, you look at the simulators filesystem, stored somewhere under ~/Library)

For whatever reason, ~/Library gets hidden after upgrading to 10.7 “Lion”.

To make it visible. run Terminal and execute
$ chflags nohidden ~/Library



You can also get there by:

  • From Finder click on Go to Folder… from the Go menu
  • Enter ~/Library in the text field and click Go

I only add this because some of us (me) haven’t had to dig into the file system much before.
