I have Linux Mint on my Laptop and Windows 10 on my Desktop, whenever I copy a NSP file to the SD Card on Mint I cant't install it 'cause it gets corrupted (white icon, install failed). It never happens on Windows 10.

I use mint and mine works perfectly when I eject the SD card.
So you don't have any problems copying files, in this case NSP files with Mint? Good to know...

Sounds like either a faulty/fake SD card or a cheap dongle to connect it to pc. Also, I've heard issues with SX OS installer. Have you tried installing with Tinfoil?
It happens on a 32GB Sandisk and the 128GB Silicon Power I hace, also with a USB SD card reader and a SD Card reader...only on Mint not Windows 10....Mint copy the files, I eject and I get .TRASH files, the NSP doesn't have an icon and doesn't install on SX OS or Tinfoil, I did a fresh Mint install with a new SSD and it does it...maybe it's my laptop? At least I know it's not Mint per se.

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 with Cinnamon, I don't have this issue. It does sound like it's potentially related to your file manager though. Try copying with command line and see what happens?
