    Nautilus 3.30 examples.desktop

    In Ubuntu 19.04 with nautilus 3.30 in my Home directory i see a file named examples.desktop. If I open this file I see it as a text file while in preceding releases used to be a link to a directory containing some examples.
    Also copying the file to desktop i see it as text.
    is this function abandoned? or can I somehow have it again?
    thanks for any suggestion.

    link type .desktop files are no longer executable in 3.30. So just browse to the location (/usr/share/example-content/Ubuntu_Free_Culture_Showcase) to view the 2 files within.
    If desired set that location as a bookmark (why, no idea as they are no nothing examples..

    I do not need the examples but I'm surprised that this folder is still present in recent ISO

    Well it likely won't be present by release, a decision needs to be made as whether to drop the showcase altogether or how to keep it, a bookmark is likely the method if kept.
