Can't get an answer from the devs... can't get an answer from the Linux Mint community.
that seems a little petulant. Just because you have not received instructions of how to get around your specific problem, does not mean that people do not care, it may simply be that the one person who holds your answer has not logged on yet. Be a little bit more patient.
Remember that not ALL problems have a solution, although I am sure that your one does.
