Whenever I click on Documents on the Computer Menu, it directs me to the Documents folder I had in Ubuntu One (which I have uninstalled) and I get the following error message:

Could not find "/home/dposnanski/Ubuntu One/Documents"

how can I change it so it directs me to "/home/dposnanski/Documents" instead ?

Here's a screenshot

Documents folder pointing to Ubuntu One folder

Thank you!

I'm not sure how you got into this situation, but you can fix it by editing ~/.gtk-bookmarks, or removing the file altogether if you have no useful custom bookmarks in there.

Thanks, it now points to the right folder.. but it moved to the bookmarks menu instead of the computer menu.. any ideas how I can change that?? Thanks again!! – Deli00 Jan 30 '12 at 15:45
@Deli00, what happens if you remove the file completely? – Chipaca Jan 31 '12 at 8:55
