NAME

user-dirs.conf − configuration for xdg−user−dirs−update

DESCRIPTION

The /etc/xdg/user−dirs.conf file is a text file that controls the behavior of the xdg−user−dirs−update command. Users can have their own ~/.config/user−dirs.conf file, which overrides the system−wide configuration.

The following keys are recognised:

enabled=boolean

When set to False, xdg−user−dirs−update will not change the XDG user dirs configuration.

filename_encoding=encoding

This sets the filename encoding to use. encoding can be an explict encoding name, such as UTF−8, or "locale", which means the encoding of the users locale will be used.

Lines beginning with a # character are ignored.

ENVIRONMENT

XDG_CONFIG_DIRS

The system−wide user−dirs.conf file is located in this directory. The default is /etc/xdg.

XDG_CONFIG_HOME

The per−user user−dirs.conf file is located in this directory. The default is $HOME/.config.
