Re: 20.2: Url links and launchers desktop extension visible when moved to another place

This is how Thunar — Xfce's file manager — version on Linux Mint 20.2 treats the special type of files you created at step 1. Those are desktop entry files; text files describing information about an application such as the name, icon, and description. These files are used for application launchers ...

Re: OpenSSL and Simplify3d Installation?

The FAQ says this about it: https://www.simplify3d.com/support/faq/#quest-6346. That's also the answer you see repeated on the forums. It says you should run the program as root so that it can access the serial port the printer is on. Before doing that I'd suggest to try adding yourself to the dialo...

Re: Linux Mint base Ubuntu 21.04 bests Arch Linux for perrformance

Linux Mint base Ubuntu 21.04 … That doesn't exist. Linux Mint 20.x are based on Ubuntu 20 .04 LTS.

Re: PSA: EvoWise mirror has shut down, check your Software Sources

Update: The package mint-mirrors received an update to version 1.2.2 this morning which removes EvoWise as option in Software Sources. That prevents any further users from being affected. Only users that had previously selected EvoWise as main mirror can be affected. If you have problems with Updat...

Re: Where and how to report bug in virtual keyboard?

Which Linux Mint version are you using, which edition? There may be differences between them wrt the virtual keyboard. On Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon the virtual keyboard software is Caribou. I'd suggest before reporting an issue to the maintainer you do some more troubleshooting. On Linux Mint 20.2 Ci...

Re: Regedit and Fallout New Vegas on Wine

Ah. You may need to jump through some more hoops to change the registry files in the right place, as Steam uses Proton with I think a separate wine prefix from Wine. A quick search for "proton regedit" perhaps finds some tips here, though bit dated and not really detailed: https://www.redd...

You can find them on the HEAnet mirror as well, which is the source from which the other mirrors propagate.

Re: How to install LabVIEW2016 from RPM packages?

This will be a bit, or a lot, of a headache. LabVIEW only supports operating systems that use the RPM package format. Linux Mint uses the DEB package format. These are incompatible. There is a tool called alien that can convert RPM packages to DEB packages so you might be able to install the softwar...

So the drive being partitioned as NTFS could have had something to do with that too.
That is the cause of this issue. As detailed above, you can fix all the copied files in one go with a little work.
