Re: Ubuntu style file transfer gui on Mint?

i'm sure just like in windows there must be at least programs that can be installed to give you what you want. It's a DE function in Ubuntu and trying to install the Ubuntu packages that'd replicate it would be a very good way to break things. pretty sure taking over the transfer functions if done ...

first it's not debunked advice, second it's not bad advice and you know it. you damn well know you only use the nuclear option if there is no other choice.
