Desktop shortcuts disappear when you click "follow link"

Postby dr0 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 5:38 pm

Hello. I stumbled upon this weird glitch in Mint 18.2 Cinnamon. Basically, if I make a desktop shortcut to a file on my HDD, and click "Follow link to original file" it just crashes all desktop shortcuts, and to be honest, I don't know how to bring them back after this, other than restart the system. Is it a known bug and is there a fix for this?
