Stow Problem ignore files

I wrote about stow before, but I was trying to use after six months, I thought it would be straight forward.

But not at all.

That article is missing a lot of details for example it says type the following command

    stow -nvt ~ *

But type this command where, that I found that I’ve to be in .dotfiles. But when I try it there, I get weird errors

stow -nvt ~ *
stow: ERROR: The stow directory .dotfiles does not contain package

The problem was that I have to ignore files and only look for folders not files on the root. Adding slash to * will do that such as

    cd .dotfiles

stow -nvt ~ */
