I noticed that, in Ubuntu 17.10, Nautilus has a slightly weird selection of "places" in the left side-pane - at least for my taste (trash can is there, but Desktop isn't...). However, as far as I can tell, there is no way to customize this, other than to edit the source code and recompile. So, I would at least like to bookmark the Desktop, but the "Bookmark current location" option is inactive, when I open the Desktop in Nautilus.
Is this normal, or is this just a problem with my installation? If it's normal, does anyone have an idea how to bookmark the Desktop anyway?
