Okay... Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal
) and type:
That should tell you your home folder.
What I meant to do was to click Places > Computer
, then in the window that opens click on Bookmarks > Edit Bookmarks
. This should open a windows which lists all your bookmarks (which are the places which appear in the Places tab). If you look at these, they should say things like /home/bofh/Documents
, with /home/bofh
replaced with whatever you saw when you ran pwd
. If these are all correct, then can you access your shortcuts by clicking in the Places sidebar in the "Computer" window (rather than in the Places menu)?
