I just installed Linux Mint 4.0 last night. Some previous experience with Ubuntu on and off for the last 2 years.
I'm delighted with Mint, I run a 2 HDD set-up, XP on one and a Linux distro (now Mint) on the other. Mint installed perfectly and sorted boot out just as I've had to manually edit GRUB in the past. Perfect, no hassles. And no installing browser plug-ins, fantastic.
I wanted to see my XP HDD and the My Pictures file from the Mint drive so I created a link. Downloaded Picasa which set about searching for pics.
This morning the link reports as broken, Picasa on the MInt drive can't see anything. There seems to be no way to edit the link. Going through "Computer" I get asked for my password to access the drive with XP on (so this must be what's causing the broken link, permission is required). The link then appears and Picasa starts trawling through my folder (all 40GB worth!) for pics again.
Is there any way I can change things so that the Mint HDD can always see pictures folder on my XP drive?
I also thought Picasa would have archived the thumbnails on the Mint drive.
