Why would you be trying to clean up an .AppleDouble Apple based file using Linux? Is this a hidden folder in your /home directory? If it is and you have a dual boot with OS X or another version of the Apple operating system, you might need to leave it alone. I don't know because you gave us very little information to go on.

I was thinking along the same lines, if it is in a Linux based installation can you please tell us what application made the file?

actually i have a Samba server.. all data from macintosh transfer to my Samba Server (login anyone) then from Samba Server i transfer the data to my Network Attached Storage (NAS) the one of my backup server. if i can do that they have a problem cannot transfer the data because of .AppleDouble the error is no such a file. thats why i need to manual remove but i cannot see any .AppleDouble.. i hope they have a way i can remove easy the .AppleDouble.

Can you take a snapshot of the .AppleDouble error and post it here so we all can take a closer look at it?
