I've changed some favourite folder locations in ~/.config/xdg-user-dirs.dirs, since I prefer different locations for Music and Pictures folder, and nautilus recognized the changes. However the Unity files lens don't. If I try to open e.g. music folder from files lens, Unity tries to open the old folder location.

How to make changes in ~/.config/xdg-user-dirs.dirs have effect in files lens?

Thanks

Very simple solution. Unity files lens uses bookmarks from nautilus. After editing ~/.config/xdg-user-dirs.dirs the bookmarks are invalid, so I edited them with the bookmark editor in nautilus and now everything works well. –  elfinit Oct 14 '11 at 10:21

I've modified paths in ~/.config/xdg-user-dirs.dirs and music lens finds songs w/o problems. have you tried to open banshee, update collection with the new path and look back at the lens?

Banshee uses the correct location for my music, but files lens don't find any music files. I updated the collection, no effect. –  elfinit Oct 14 '11 at 9:56
