Death By 1000 Knives - Folder Missing From "Places" Menu


Hi, Again, Everyone,

My latest problem: (Ubuntu 10.04)

My "pictures" folder is missing from the "Places" menu. It used to be there....I didn't do anything...but now it's gone. I liked having it there- I can access that folder through "home folder" but it was nice having it where I could get to it with just one click. How can I get it back? (There is no option to edit the places menu in the "edit menus" thingie)

Try dragging this folder to the panel on the left side of Nautilus window.

Some items in the "Places" menu are just shortcuts/bookmarks: bookmarks added in nautilus shows in it (in your case, you probably just accidentally deleted a bookmark to your /home/<your username>/Pictures)
