I installed a Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon freshly on a friend’s notebook.
Everything went fine some weeks, now he calls and says, he can’t extract files in the filemanager anymore.
He brought me the notebook and I had a look at it.
I found that the menu item ‘extract here’ somehow disappeared from the context menu.
(when right clicking on a .tar.gz or .rar).
I couldn’t figure out yet, what he’d done to have this issue.
I setup a new Linux Mint 19 in a virtual machine and it worked fine. Context menu there, no problem.
I never had such a problem myself, so he must have done some messing around with the menu, right?
Maybe someone can give me a hint where to look for a solution.
Thanks, Fast Edi
