sorting many images for doubles [SOLVED]

Beside flying me to the moon, Linux can do a lot of things!

I have very many jpg-files in various folders.

Is there an application or command(s), which can do a bulk comparison, meaning select a folder or its content completely and see where in other folders are the same images?

Re: home folder not mounted to /home

Why Timeshift - because Timeshift is not in sda6. On the other side mounting should happen during the installation process. I do not want to exclude that I made a mistake. Is there a chance to repair the system in the way that sda6 is properly mounted at /home and that Timeshift files are in a direc...

/home folder on desktop - how to remove [SOLVED]

LM20 Cinnamon

I suddenly have a /home folder icon on my desktop and don't know how it came there.
For me it is enough to see that in the Nemo file manager.

How can I get rid of this icon?

i don't dare to try the menu item unmount.

Thanks in advance for helping comments
