NAME
xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update - Graphical User Interface for xdg-user-dirs-update. SYNOPSIS
xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update DESCRIPTION
xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update is automatically run on login to the GNOME desktop environment to aid in the management of the locale specific XDG User Directories. Should the user be starting a session that is using a different locale to that which was used to create the original XDG User Directories, then the user will be prompted to make a decision on whether to update the XDG User Directories to the new locale or leave them unchanged. The original locale that was used to create the initial set of XDG User Directories on first login is stored in the file ${XDG_CON- FIG_HOME}/user-dirs.locale. Should the user decide to update to the current locale, then xdg-user-dirs-update will be used to perform the desired action. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment variables: HOME. Other environment variable that are used are: XDG_CONFIG_HOME Base directory for storge of XDG configuration files. Defaults to ${HOME}/.config FILES
The following files are used by this application: /usr/bin/xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update Application to manage updates to user's XDG User Directories ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/user-dirs.locale Locale used in the initial creation of the current XDG User Directories and what they map to. ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/user-dirs.dirs Location of the user-specific configuration including the current list of directories and what they map to.

NAME
xdg-user-dirs-update - Update XDG user dir configuration SYNOPSIS
xdg-user-dirs-update [OPTION...] [--set NAME PATH...] DESCRIPTION
xdg-user-dirs-update updates the current state of the users user-dirs.dir. If none existed before then one is created based on the system default values, or falling back to the old non-translated filenames if such directories exists. The list of old directories used are: ~/Desktop, ~/Templates and ~/Public. If an old configuration exists it is updated with any new default directories. Additionally, any configured directories that point to non-existing locations are reset by pointing then to the users home directory. This typically happens when the users removed the directory, so they likely don't want to use it anymore. On the first run a user-dirs.locale file is created containing the locale that was used for the translation. This is used later by gui tools like xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update to detect if the locale was changed, letting you to migrate from the old names. xdg-user-dirs-update is normally run automatically at the start of a user session to update the XDG user dirs according to the users locale. OPTIONS
The following options are understood: --help Print help output and exit. --force Update existing user-dirs.dir, but force a full reset. This means: Don't reset nonexisting directories to HOME, rather recreate the directory. Never use backwards compatible non-translated names. Always recreate user-dirs.locale. --dummy-output PATH Write the configuration to PATH instead of the default configuration file. Also, no directories are created. --set NAME PATH Sets the XDG user dir with the given name. NAME should be one of the following: DESKTOP DOWNLOAD TEMPLATES PUBLICSHARE DOCUMENTS MUSIC PICTURES VIDEOS PATH must be an absolute path, e.g. $HOME/Some/Directory. FILES
The XDG user dirs configuration is stored in the user-dirs.dir file in the location pointed to by the XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable. ENVIRONMENT
The XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable determines where the user-dirs.dirs file is located. SEE ALSO
