are you running a firewall on the Peppermint PC's ?
Can you ping one PC from another ?
Can you access the other PC's shares by enteringsmb://192.168.2.x

Not sure if this means anything but if this as a DNS issue I'm using opendns but I'm unable to specify that in my router (Superhub)
it is however easy enough to enter:smb://192.168.2.x
Have you got both PC's using the superhubs IP as the DNS server for the IPv4 connections in NetworkManager ?(and preferably set IPv6 to "Ignore")
YES that's probably the problem, if you've set the opendns server in NetworkManager, openDNS can't resolve your LOCAL hostnames.
As you are using static IP addresses, you could help out by adding the entry into your /etc/hosts file on Linux2192.168.2.2 Linux1and on Linux1:192.168.2.3 Linux2
