Boldewyn is the name of the donkey in German fables (at least, the ones from Goethe). Despite its bad name, a donkey is an animal with its own head and quite a portion of wit.

As someone pointed out once, if you say to a horse to jump down that abyss, it would happily do so, whereas the donkey would give you a kick where you deserve it to.

And someone else pointed out, that laziness is a core requirement for a good developer...

comment Opened a JPG picture with notepad, pasted all the “text” to a new notepad file, changed to .JPG and it no longer opens. Why?
For the interested: You can edit images in Vim: However, the trick is, that Vim converts the file in the XPM format, which is plain ASCII.

Confirmed. I've installed nemo-fileroller from linuxmint, but it exists in Debian, too. So it appears in the list, because it's installed and exists somewhere from Debian.

@RobertSiemer It might have slipped your attention, that I accepted it after two days w/o sufficient answer, and before any of the other answers dropped in. I accepted it, because it solved my problem. I also upvoted all later answers, but, I beg your pardon, never changed the state of acceptness. You will also note on this site’s FAQ, that I haven't drawn any reputation gains from this move, where in fact I've lost 2 reps for not accepting someone else's answer. So please take a step back in the future before judging someone's decisions in plain public and rethink the possible causes.
