GNU nano 6.2 .config/user-dirs.dirs
# This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update
# If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're
# interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run.
# Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped
# homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an
# absolute path. No other format is supported.
all my files disappeared don’t know what happened though.
I reinstall the xdg-user-dirs and xdg-user-dirs-gtk hoping it will fix it but it did nothing… I also edited the .config/user-dirs.dirs and when i reboot the config/user-dirs.dirs file still the same…
Any help will be appreciated.
So I reckon you have gone over the content of your home folder to locate your files and not found them?
You must have run some delete or move operation - perhaps accidently - because files don’t just vanish.
Do you recall any drag and drop operation in the file manager?
Some file managers do not - unless the file drag and drop is cross device/partition - ask for confirmation on the move.
So you it is technically possible to select a lot of folders and drop them in an unexpected place - then you think - what? - where did they go - it has happened to me more times than I care to admit.
Another option is accidental deletion - but then you should be able to locate them in the trash - the physical location is ~/.local/share/Trash/files.
If the deletion has been done by means of a terminal command - the files are deleted on sight - which means no trash recovery only forensic recovery even then - if the folders has been rewritten the files may be very hard to recover.
i wanted to uninstall mysql but the bash cound not find mysql so i deleted mysql files and later found out that it mariadb so i also deleted ralated files to mariadb and it dependencies then later found out that i could just use pacman to uninstall mariadb … i think that why all my files is vanished also my browser history and downloads of brave is gone forever… i just want to add those folders as it was
