This question already has an answer here:
In the File Manager (Xubuntu 12.04), I can see some default folders which I don't need (like Videos, Music, ...). Is it safe to remove them or might programs not work properly afterwards (like on Mac OS X where I tried that once)?
I found this thread on Ubuntu Forums How to permanently delete folders "Music, Videos, Documents,...." (through Nautilus) . Is this the way one should remove these folders?
