Two final Slack Questions [Firefox & xdg-user-dirs]


Hi guys.

Only these two, and promise to not bug you again.

I'm using KDE, and I'd like to have my /home dir populated with the usual files, music, docs etc. So for that, IIRC, I need to install xdg-user-dirs also in Slackware, correct?

And regarding Firefox esr. As there's no real need to have the latest release, I'm okay with esr. But when a new esr comes, it will be replaced by slackpkg upgrade-all?


Thanks again for all your help, you guys are the best.

Slackware already has a xdg-user-dirs package, so no, you don't need to install it. If you want to change the default directories, edit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs.

Yes. As soon as the updated package is available, slackpkg will show it.

Hi Diantre. First of all, thanks for your reply.

Anyway, i didn't have the ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs file, so i created it. Inside, I pasted:

Quote:
XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop"
XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Downloads"
XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Templates"
XDG_PUBLICSHARE_DIR="$HOME/Public"
XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Documents"
XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/Music"
XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Pictures"
XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Videos"
But it sadly doesn't work. Any hints on next steps?

Much obliged.

edit: Solved. I didn't realize setting the KDE's locale is not enough, that i had to edit profile.d.

Anyway, If any of you guys are left with no user folders in /home upon install, all you have to do is :
Quote:
xdg-user-dirs-update
And it will create the folders in /home and the config files inside ~./config

Enjoy, Slackers!
