comment How to customize (add/remove folders/directories) the “Places” menu of Ubuntu 13.04 “Files” application?
After upgrading from 12.10, my nautilus Places showed Desktop for both the desktop and the downloads. Editing ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs as indicated in this answer I was able to correct this.

comment Problems with backup/restore compiz settings
I, too, experience this problem on one machine running 13.04. On two other machines that were running 13.04 I do not experience this problem.

comment .deb package creation. Why are my files not being installed?
Purge the package after removing it. dh may be automatically marking the file as a conffile since it is in /etc. conffiles are not deleted on package removal, but are deleted on package purge. (this is to allow removing, then reinstalling, a package without losing your configuration) The install command you show in your comment can't work because it would be a no-op if it did (install the file right where it already is :))

The install file is used by dh_install, if the package uses debhelper for building.

@JesseGaspar Yes, those images show the shell output that is expected when you don't have sufficient privileges. I just expanded my comments to a full-fledged answer. Maybe that makes it more clear?
