I have Xubuntu instaled (with XFce) and I have custom icon for "Pobrane" (and. Download) and that folder have always is my destination for download (in web browser for instance).

How Ubuntu/Xubuntu know that localized name is Download directory? Where that information is saved?

This information is stored in the file $HOME/.config/user-dirs.dirs. You can edit this file if you want to change some of the folder names.

See the user-dirs.dirs manpage for some more information.
