Newbie here. Where should I...?

Post by witt78 »

Hello all...

I have just signed up for this forum account, so I figured I would take a moment and say hello. I'm building a new home network from the router on down; and have dumped all my Windows machines for various Linux distributions. Linux Mint has ended up my daily driver. Congrats!

However, I have found a typo in a Mint configuration file, re: torrent magnet links.

I expected to find a bug reporting portion of the forum, but as it turns out there isn't a clear place to put my findings. As I'm new here I figured I would ask, where I should put such a thing.

In short, Magnet links were not working for me, until I changed a - to an = in the /usr/share/applications/defaults.list file. When I search for the word "Magnet" on the forum, I get several threads that involve strange behavior with the links; but I don't see a post with a clear cut answer pointing to this defualts.list typo.

Where should I place this post?

Cheers!
