Nautilus already has a special folder heuristics - ~/Desktop is
displayed with a different icon.

Let's enhance this, make special icons for them and Add Real name in

File selector needs something, too, to make things consistent.

Maybe these folders should be mapped there to predefined bookmarks -
Desktop is already there, and display only related bookmarks - for
example in eog display "Pictures" but not "Music" etc.

It should be discussed, whether to translate these bookmarks, or also
folder names in file view and tree view, or make these directories
hidden in folder view of Home and create something like places://
It can have some consequences - e. g. dropping translated Bilder to
gnome-terminal must put /home/me/Pictures.


Idea 1:
- Special folder in bookmarks.

Idea 2:
- Special folders (including Home and Desktop) in places://) Put
places:// to the default Desktop.

Idea 3 (not mentioned above):
- Make the list of special folders simply configurable.

Additional idea 4 (not mentioned above):
- Predefine also special folders for equivalents of the FHS directories
in home directory. Define CONFIG_SITE to users, so they can
seamlessly ./configure ; make ; make install to these directories.
