I'm trying to symlink the desktop folder to another folder. To do that, I have to first delete the folder, but it immediately recreates itself.
Alternatively, I could set up a boot process to mount --bind the two folders, but I feel like the symbolic link should work, and don't want to wade out of my depth.
How can I link these two folders? Something special is going on with ~/Desktop that I don't understand. I'm using Cinnamon.
