How to change default folder names in home directory? My system (Ubuntu 14.04) was translated to Polish, and I changed to English, but left the names of default folders in Polish when asked. Now I want to change them to English, how to do that?
There is a file
~/.config/user-dirs.dirs where you can manually set the default folder names / directories. Don't forget to rename the actual folders likewise as well.
man xdg-user-dirs-updatefor in depth explanation.
