I am a total noob in Ubuntu, and i would like to change the default directory of Documents, Music, Pictures etc. My setting is as follows:
- 1 partition for Windows
- 1 partition for ubuntu
- 1 partition in NTFS format for Storage.
In that particular partition I store the Documents, Pictures etc for Windows.
Now I would like to make the exact same folders that store these stuff in Windows, to store the same stuff in Ubuntu as well. I used the tips I found in one post here, mentioning how to change the lines like this in
XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" XDG_MUSIC_DIR="/home/common/Music" XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Movies"
and indeed it works fine, but every time I restart the machine, it's reset to simple "$Home/", without pointing to any actual directory. I mean that if I open the Documents folder, it takes me to an empty folder.
What is it that I'm doing wrong? How can I fix it? Many thanks in advance. (I use 14.04)
my fstab looks like that:
The terminal on the right side has the dev6, which is the partition i want to assign the Home folder to
