How do you structure your ${HOME}?

Postby nnm » 2017-10-23 05:47

How do folks organize their home directory? The XDG defaults of capital letters and directories starting with the same letters (eg. Downloads/Documents) is insanity.
In the past I used to simply reconfigure xdg-user-dirs to use lowercase names. Now my latest attempt is to somewhat reproduce the heir in the home directory with ~/var/tmp for downloads.

You're not the only one to lowercase the XDG dirs... that is, the ones I don't just remove.

Following the guidelines stated here (1), I configure the file ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and choose any name, use lowercase, hide the 'Desktop', 'Share' and 'Templates' directories and set the desired paths. I do not use the xdg-user-dirs packages.

1. http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/xdg-user-dirs/


Code: Select all
$ cat ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs


# http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/xdg-user-dirs/
#
# Create the target directories.
#
# Save this file as ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs to configure
# the personal directories.
#
# Restart the session to reflect the changes.

XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/.escritorio"
XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/documentos"
XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/descargas"
XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/musica"
XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/imagenes"
XDG_PUBLICSHARE_DIR="$HOME"
XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME"
XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/videos"
