Well, anyway it seems to be an ext4 filesystem which does support symlinks. Try running

Code: Select all

tar xJf myarchive.tar.xz
in a terminal, changing "myarchive.tar.xz" to the name of your actual archive, and see if it extracts properly.

Regarding your second screenshot, I don't see any black folder icons, just two black shell script icons.

That's what Ms Casteen said in 5th grade "you have to follow instructions Bobby" 9_9

I will change my ext2 to ext4
