How can I remove from Dash the Home/Folders: 'Pictures', 'Music', 'Videos' and 'Downloads", which I have already removed from my /home directory?


Edit / Remove them from ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs, and ~/.gtk-bookmarks.

  • I did it already. The folders are deleted from my /home but they are remaining in Dash. – Ilias Sep 25 '12 at 10:49
  • I added another config file you could try, but I don't know if that's where the Dash is getting it. – valse-triste Sep 25 '12 at 18:22

  • I tried both 'privacy' and 'log activity manager' but the folders are still there (in Dash). – Ilias Sep 25 '12 at 10:50
  • I tried also to give criteria results to 'search' excluding 'folders' so i cannot see those folders but anytime i log in the searching criteria are disabled and they return to default. Any idea to make the criteria permanent? – Ilias Sep 25 '12 at 10:55
