In Mint 17 (Cinnamon), I'm using the file manager (I guess it's called Nemo?) to view some header files after building OpenSSL in the 'include' directory. Each of the header files in this directory has a sub-icon that looks like an arrow, I guess this means it's a symlink or soft link to a real file. I just want to copy/paste all of these header files into another directory, but when I do this I instead get copies of the link itself and not the target files.
How can I copy/paste the actual physical files and not the links, from the links themselves?
Here is the result of
