Talk:XDG user directories

From ArchWiki

The requirement for DESKTOP != DOWNLOAD is easy to test.

To back the revert on DESKTOP !=DOWNLOAD just point both to the same directory that is not Downloads, then e.g. download a file from Chrome and see it appearing in the freshly created default $HOME/Downloads folder.

BTW the text "It will also be necessary to create any new custom directories." is probably wrong, directories are created automagically, AFAICS. Mikhailian (talk) 16:59, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

I confirm this behavior in Chromium (source code), but it seems to be application specific and not worthy of mention in a general article like this. -- andreymal (talk) 18:37, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for digging it down to the exact line. You are right, this is annoying but probably not worth mentioning in this page. Mikhailian (talk) 13:42, 3 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
