I’m new to Pop!OS and a Linux GUI in general (I was a C developer on RedHat command line servers for some years) I think it would useful to put symbolic links to documents and applications on the Pop!OS desktop… yeah like Windows shortcuts!
I’ve tried using
ln -s <source> <target> with the target being the desktop folder and it seems that the Pop!OS desktop/file explorer recognises a symlink and adds a visual notation to denote it is a soft symlink.
I’ve Googled the topic to death and it seems to not be a thing. I have tried various keywords:
- linux desktop symbolic link
- linux file explorer create symbolic link
- linux nautilus create link
What did I miss? Is it this a bad idea? Has Redmond got into my DNA, and now I think I need shortcuts whe in fact I should let it go?
Thanks in advance,
