Description Rafaël Carré 2006-08-27 08:19:28 UTC
A test from xdg-utils asks me if some file appears on my Desktop.

On my Desktop, there is a Desktop/ directory which containes that file, this is
because I tuned Gnome to assume that ~/ is my Desktop dir, instead of ~/Desktop/

On an out of the box Gnome desktop, ~/Desktop/ is the default Desktop directory,
that can be tuned in the gconf boolean key

maybe xdg scripts could use "gconftool-2 -g
/apps/nautilus/preferences/desktop_is_home_dir" before assuming ~/Desktop/ is
the desktop direct
ory ?
