@tessus I did. I also posted replies on a couple other related posts but no one responded yet. I thought you may know. If not, don’t worry about it. No need for a symlink. When I deleted the 3 directories to completely remove Joplin, it broke a few pieces of it. When I attempted to reinstall, the script said it was already installed. Something remained somewhere. I analyzed the script and found where it was launching the program. I launched directly from the file manager and it replaced the item in the menu, but without an icon. I exported that to my desktop, grabbed one of the proposed new icons, and set the --profile as you suggested. That part works perfectly now. The profile resides on an encrypted volume and the icon on my desktop is much better than the blue J. Now if I can just get E2EE syncing properly, I’ll be all set. I’ll get it, with or without support. It just takes longer when I have to reinvent the wheel.
Howsecureismypassword.net says it would take a computer about 4 Billion years to crack my Dropbox password, and I have TOTP enabled, so it’s already pretty secure.
