Notepad++ only opens files in the $HOME folder

Post by ineuw » Fri Sep 11, 2020 3:43 pm

With snap I installed Notepad++ in Linux Mint Cinnamon 20, and it's working very well, but won't open files anywhere except in the $HOME folder. Not in direct subfolders, or symlinked folders. Added the following code,

Code: Select all

sudo snap connect notepad-plus-plus:removable-media
but it doesn't help.

Maybe a problem with the snap (Sandbox?). Please try with notepad++ install in wine directly.

Thanks. The issue is with snap. It disables editing of files in .hidden folders.
