Unfortunately this version is quite out of date and seems to have a few issues with Linux Mint MATE 19.2 on the 5.3 kernel. Couldn't really get it to do much unfortunately.

This helped me to find and mount my network shares in Linux Mint 14 (Dolphin file manger). Easy to use, just a few clicks and now everything simply works! Thanks!
