Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In the File Manager (Xubuntu 12.04), there appear default folders which I don't need (like Videos, Music, ...). Is it safe to remove them or might programs not work properly afterwards (like on Mac OS X where I tried that once)?

I found http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1851832. Is this the way one should remove these folders?

What folders are you talking about? –  Alvar May 21 '12 at 9:10
    
he's probably talking about the once in /home/$USER (ie. Desktop, Downloads) @alvar –  Rinzwind May 21 '12 at 9:13
    
Sorry, I completely forgot (I updated the post). Indeed, I meant precisely those in ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs –  Marius Hofert May 21 '12 at 9:30
    
It's better to state the folders in the question rather than linking to an external site. –  Alvar May 21 '12 at 9:51
    
Thanks, I stated them. The link is necessary for my last question. –  Marius Hofert May 21 '12 at 12:24
