Using manjaro xfce and programs installed by default, like Thunar and mousepad.
Edit by newhere: The above text was added by forum admin. I honestly don’t see why the admins of this forum has this eager to change my threads, add text that is not relevant to the subject, change the subject so that they don’t mention what the issue is, or move the threads to categories where they don’t belong.
End of edit, here is what this thread is about:
I have a folder /shared that I was planning on using as a location to store files shared with other users. The folder is a mountpoint for /dev/nvme1n1p2.
Then I created a symlink in my homefolder to this folder
ln -s /shared
I terminal, I can do
which takes me to the content of /shared.
However, if I use Thunar, mosepad or some other gui programs, double click on shared under my home folder, tries to open the symlink as a file. If I try to save a file and double click on the symlink to browse to /shared, I’m asked if I want to overwrite the file /home/myuser/shared.
I suspect this behavior started in early October. I think this was not an issue before, although I’m not 100% sure if I actually tested it before. Is this some settings I’ve managed to mess up, or is it a result of an automatic update, or has it always been like this?
