    Change nautilus 'places'

    Hi

    Is it possible to change the entries in the 'places section in nautilus side bar? I never use Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures or video, but there are plenty of other places I would like to have there (which I have in bookmarks, but that's right at the bottom). The options to Remove or Rename them on the right-click context menu are greyed out.
    To err is human, but not uniquely so.

    right clicking on Applications to edit the Menu (alacarte) let you tweaks menu/submenus as you like.

    What does this mean?

    What do you mean by "Applications"?

    Where?

    I'm in the process of moving all my /home/(user) folders to my hard drive (to get it out of my solid-state drive), and discovered that Nautilus 'Places' hasn't started pointing to the new /home/(user) folders. That's a shame, because I expected it to.

    Not sure if there's a raring version yet. But ubuntu tweak can edit quicklists.

    But in nautilus itself those were hardcoded. http://askubuntu.com/questions/22366...es-in-nautilus

    I'm booting into raring shortly will investigate further.

    Atm, you cannot edit and add anything from here, right?

    I don't know how to get that 'bookmarks' window! Any clues?

    Edit: OK Found it. I've removed the entries I don't want, but they still appear in 'places' (and never appeared in 'bookmarks')

    Click on Home Folder top left. There's a drop down.

    dino99 hasn't been back since the forum was hacked, but alacarte (Menu Editor) isn't used any more. If you put your home directory on a separate partition, you have to mount it in order to access it. If it isn't on a separate partition, this Ask Ubuntu thread may help you solve your problem.
