I'm used to nautilus in Mint where you simply right click on a file or folder and do Make Link. It creates a link in that same folder which you can then put anywhere you like.
Xubuntu doesn't come with this and adding a custom action into Thunar for
"ln -s %f Link to %n"
doesn't create anything.
If I try something like
"ln -s /file to copy /folder the file is in"
then terminal says the file already exists, which it does. I want a link to the file that already exists.
The ln man page didn't clear anything up, wasn't expecting this to be so difficult. Any tips for a noob?
