comment How to make a Desktop “shortcut” that opens the terminal but under a different directory than the default home?
I don't use mint nor i use gnome currently. But i remember that you have to right click on the desktop and create a launcher. A window with several entries pop's up. There must be one entrybox in that window where you have to put the command.

Which terminal program are you used to (xterm, urxvt, gnome-terminal, etc)?

Did you specify the full path? Is the program executable?

comment How to download videos from Coursera with curl?
More revealing would be if you post what curl -i --user-agent "Mozilla/5.0" --cookie cookie.tx <URL> yields. You can find my output here (the "real" location of the video is in the Line beginning with Location:)

without a ~/.curlrc curl -L --user-agent "Mozilla/5.0" --cookie <COOKIE> -o <FILE> <URL> works for me (just tried it again for a second)

It definitely works. I downloaded the video both with curl and wget. It looks like your session was finalized in the meanwhile and you have to get a new valid cookie.

Maybe you have to specify the user-agent of your request via the --user-agent <agent string> switch. A common <agent string> is Mozilla/5.0.

comment How to tell xfce (or an application) where to put the window when starting?
I don't use xfce/xfwm but i read that xfwm4 has limited tiling support. Maybe tile/tiling is the keyword you are looking for!?
