Is it possible to rename default directories like
Especially I want to rename
Yes, the default home folders are defined in
.config/user-dirs.dirs, which is a hidden configuration file, and you can open it with
gedit .config/user-dirs.dirs. It looks like this, which is, hopefully, self-explanitory:
# This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update # If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're # interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run # Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped # homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an # absolute path. No other format is supported. # XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Downloads" XDG_PUBLICSHARE_DIR="$HOME/Public" XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Documents" XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/Music" XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Pictures" XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Videos" XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Templates"
Logout/login for the changed to take effect.
As I remember, Nautilus updates user directories if you simply rename them via the file manager. So I think right-clicking on the directory and choosing "Rename" from the menu should do the trick - just rename
Movies in the file manager, it will remember the change.
