I am trying to add a new file extension to cinnamon's
new file menu
create new document
I would like to add entries in this list
I remember that I have done this before based on a tutorial, but it seems to have disappeared from the web since.
I can remember that the source is a directory, but can't recall the path from which it fetches the file types and default contents.
Where can I find this directory?
- OS: Linux Mint 18.3
- desktop: cinnamon
- file manager: nemo
Update/Research: According to this article's 7th point, the directory I'm looking for is
which doesn't exist on my system. Since my context menu already has custom file templates I suspect it has been moved to another location between versions. which exists but is a bit tricky, see answer.
