hi XFCE community. I'd like to if it is possible to set up certain directories like /home/$USER/Images as the default directory for photos, same for /home/$USER/Music, /home/$USER/Videos, etc. I haven't see an option for that on XFCE, but in others like Plasma yes. Maybe I can use an external program? Or maybe I just have to create some files? I'm not an expert in that.
Thanks in advance!
Distro: Parabola GNU/Linux-libre (based on Arch, same packages except non-free ones)

Look at xdg-user-dirs-update and the associated ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs file. There are a small set of generic xdg folder identifiers that can be assigned to point to different directories. For example, to make ~/test your Music directory, try:
xdg-user-dirs-update --set MUSIC ~/test
Look at the ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs before and after the above command. If you want to see the change in Thunar, you need to make sure the thunar daemon is not running "thunar -q" and thunar needs to be restarted.
Edit: Here is the arch wiki page about it.
