Thread: Default directory change

    Default Default directory change


    In 11.1 the default directory for dolphin and xterm is
    /home/username/Documents. How do I change this to be just
    /home/username?

    The dolphin Settings->Configure Dolphin->Home Folder setting appears to
    have no effect, but since xterm is always giving the Documents
    directory, I think the setting is external to dolphin.

    If nothing else you could put a command to change directories in
    ~/.bashrc (/home/yourusername/.bashrc). To just go to your home
    directory you can stick with just 'cd'.

    I haven't seen this myself but maybe something you've installed changes
    the directory in one of the login scripts like .bashrc for you.

    Good luck.

    I'm finding this quite irritating. It is done for all user accounts.

    Ok I have found a solution.

    '[Bug 166088] Unable to change home directory in dolphin'
    (http://www.archivum.info/kde-bugs-di.../msg04445.html)

    I needed a reboot before the setting would work.
