How can I rename the sidebar shortcut to my home directory? I changed the language from english to german. The name of the shortcut is "Persönlicher Ordner" (Personal Folder) and I want to rename it to show my user name. I figured out a way to edit all the other shortcuts by edit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs but there is not an entry for the home directory, only for its sub folders.
