Okay, I have a couple of questions just generally about VL, and linux in general, and I was wondering if you could help me, VL forumites!
My first question is this:Can I set my home (/home/Civint) to be my desktop folder? The reason being that I don't use my desktop to display the contents of /home/civint/desktop, to keep it clean and minimalist, and when I download stuff in firefox, it just dumps it in my desktop folder, when I'd rather it was in my home Directory.
In FireFox go to the Edit Button >preferences , on the page that pops up , go to the second one down this lets you choose the location wher you want your downloaded files to go I Always create a folder in my home Directory call Downloads or something similar and tell Firefox to download everything there. instead of on the desktop. You can create the folder in your /home folder by going to any terminal and typing the following
<enter your root password when asked>
mkdir /home/<Your user name>/downloads
Now in Firefox go to
<second in the list of opptions will be a button save files to:> click that and choose /home/<your usr name>/downloads.
<NOTE: if you are using Firefox 22.214.171.124 the preference menu will be under tools not edit>
From now on the downloaded files will be sent to /home/<your usr name>/downloads < you can move them from there anywhere you want.>
