iPad Folders Access


This handy feature is about transferring media files from computer to iPad, not sure if
it is unique for Cinnamon desktop or could be added to Manjaro.

When I connected my iPad to the computer with Fedora Cinnamon installed, I could see
2 icons added under ‘Computer’: Photo (with Camera icon, which is also accessible by
Manjaro) and Document (with Monitor icon, which is not accessible by Manjaro)

Here is the screenshot for the 2 newly added icons.

After I click the Document icon, I would see a few folders with app-icons they are
related to, which shows in this screenshot.

Then I click the folder with VLC icon, and copy video or audio files into that folder
shows in this screenshot.

After everything is done and run VLC on iPad, I will see all the media files that I
transferred from computer earlier in VLC window and play them on iPad.

Thanks for taking the time reading this post


Mint Cinnamon is able to discover all the folders I mentioned above, but
when I try to copied anything to iPad, it just stuck at 0%, nothing copied
besides file name of the media file.

you can format your links with the " (blockquote option)
highlight, choose blockquote …

that way they are not clickable - but still easily copy/pasted without having to remove your [dot] things …

Hi Nachlese,

I tried, that didn’t work either, maybe because I am too new to the forum, I still
have a few restrictions?

Thanks anyway.

vs this:


(which is your’s, but isn’t a valid link - it goes nowhere)

Yeah, that is weird, when I edit my post by following your way, I can see the same
result as yours on the preview pane, but after I click submit, I got that error message
again says, “Sorry, you can’t include links in your posts.”

… then my way of trying to subvert the system will not work :grin:
I thought it would.

… your link - when stripped of the [xxx] stuff - still doesn’t work
check it

Hi Nachlese,

I noticed in your previous post, you missed the letter ‘i’, it is ibb_co, it should work.

Also, I got a message from system, said I just earned Basic Badge, and reached
Trust Level 1, now I am able to post images and links, I already updated my original
post with all images, so we don’t have to worry about image links.


… that’s what sometimes happens with these kind of “encrypted” things …

actual links to the pictures would have been better than posting the pictures here
(pictures occupy much more space/memory than text does - it’s not just you, and it adds up quickly …)

That’s a great idea, Nachlese, updated the original post, thanks!
