I don't - but that's too bad I guess ;-)
If I've saved a document via a gconf-aware app, and I want to gzip it
for emailing (from an rxvt or something), what then?
Symlinks are there for a reason, I wonder what? <eg>
Uh, what are we talking about?
IIRC, the proposed plan is like this:
- In GConf there'll be a mapping from GNOME Directory Names to paths.
GNOME Direcotry Name: Document Folder
- At the first start of GNOME, some kind of tool will create those folders
according to some defaults a user chooses. (~/Dokumente will be created)
- People will be able to re-run this tool to change stuff. For example, a
user might decide that ~/Dokumente is not such a nice name, and that
~/MeineDateien is much nicer. The tool will then move ~/Dokumente to
~/MeineDateien. ~/Dokumente is gone afterwards.
If so, then I don't see your problem.
The problem is, that some people here want to keep the old ~/Dokumente
folder. Correct? If so, then a symlink from MeineDateien to Dokumente
should be set, yes.
But I would not like the link. It clutters the home directory without
adding all that much, I think.
