Change desktop directory

Post by flesh-drive » Mon Jun 17, 2019 12:34 pm

I want my system work on one partition and all my other stuff on other, so I arranged it , but there is a little lack of completion. How can i change downloads, desktops, physical program place and other file default directory.

THQ in advance

Edit $HOME/.config/user-dirs.dirs file and log out and log in. An example about the file:

Code: Select all

XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Työpöytä"
XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Lataukset"
XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Mallit"
XDG_PUBLICSHARE_DIR="$HOME/Julkinen"
XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Asiakirjat"
XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/Musiikki"
XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Kuvat"
XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Videot"

Cut and paste the folders including contents into partition you desire.
