The gutsy desktop can use xdg-user-dirs and will start depending on it
soon, the tool description is:
"xdg-user-dirs is a tool to help manage "well known" user directories
like the desktop folder and the music folder. It also handles
localization (i.e. translation) of the filenames.
The way it works is that xdg-user-dirs-update is run very early in the
login phase. This program reads a configuration file, and a set of
default directories. It then creates localized versions of these
directories in the users home directory and sets up a config file in
$(XDG_CONFIG_HOME)/user-dirs.dirs (XDG_CONFIG_HOME defaults to
~/.config) that applications can read to find these directories."
The default set of directory is:
The desktop applications make use of it to know what directory to use.
Does anyone has concern about the list of directory or does it look ok
