How to add my pc, local host to GNS3 on linux mint. I have searched extensively, but there seems to be no proper article on this topic. This can be done easily in windows by configuring a loopback adapter. Any ideas on how to do that here in LM. Thnx in advance

You're welcome. One tip though. Linux won't let you use a localhost port below, I think, 1024 for security reasons so you will need to use a port higher than 1024.
