No, no, no! I'm not saying or expecting that at all!
I realize what I did. In fact, I knew it was going to happen.
All I want to do is fix the association that pcmanfm has to broken links. In fact I think that the association has nothing to do with the re-org per-se.
Maybe I'm not being clear enough???
1) The situation is that I have a large number of broken links.
2) The problem is that pcmanfm has an association, somehow, somewhere, between broken links and gimp and gedit and gpicview and leafpad in that order.
3) My difficulty is that I can't tell, just by looking at the files in pcmanfm, whether the link is broken or not.
But anyway, as I said, you (and I) have spent enough time as it is. It's bed time here in Aus and tomorrow I'll get up, have some strong coffee and just go through them one by one in a terminal session and fix or delete them manually.
