storage location of Thunar sidepane settings

As the Lead for MX Linux Fluxbox, I would like to have the hidden fluxbox folder (~/.fluxbox) listed at the top of the sidepane places below Trash by default. The point of doing this is so that a new user does not need to already know 1) that it's hidden, and 2) to hit Ctrl-h to find it.

I have searched the Xfce Docs, this Forum and done a general web search without luck so far. Which file would I need to include in skel?

TIA

Jerry, the file would be ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks. Make sure your entry is the first in the list.

Thanks--didn't think to look there.

BTW ToZ: when you're feeling bored take a quick look sometime at this OS--as we like to say, it ain't your mama's fluxbox!

Re: storage location of Thunar sidepane settings

To finish this up in case anyone else is ever interested in a similar move: it seems that the file in skel needs to read something like this in order for it to take effect when a new user is created:

file:///home/*/.fluxbox
file:///home/*/Documents
file:///home/*/Music
file:///home/*/Pictures
file:///home/*/Videos
file:///home/*/Downloads
