Set Bluetooth received folder

Does anyone know how to set the folder that files received over bluetooth are put in?

By default, they seem to be put in a hidden folder in my /home folder.

Thanks!

Re: How to Update Bios in Dell Computers with Linux

I know this rely is somewhat late, but just in case it helps anyone, I thought I would say that I updated the BIOS on a Dell Inspiron using option 2 on the Dell website link from the original post.

It all worked flawlessly as advertised by Dell.

Re: Time to talk about WhatsApp

Thanks for everyone's thoughts and opinions. I definitely don't want my life played out on the internet, I don't have FB (and never will).

Heh, your story makes me smile lsemmens, 2 years ago a buddy of mine cycled from Perth to Sydney going across the "big deserty bit". From his stories it does indeed sound like it is a good journey if you like to get away from the crowds and be thirsty. Pretty amazing trip, more amazing in that he go...

Linux (and Mint) contribute to my anger levels

<vent>
I mean when I know there is such a solid OS as GNU/Linux (Mint) out there, it *really* irritates me when I am forced to fight against windows each day in work to get things done.

Sigh.
