In a case-sensitive system like Linux, I prefer naming my directories with all lowercase and underscores. This is kind of difficult when the default user directories are all uppercase (Documents, Pictures, etc.). Here’s a quick tutorial on how to change the defaults whether you’re on Ubuntu or pretty much any other X Window System desktop.
- First either edit the default names or make new directories entirely. They don’t even have to stay in your $HOME folder if you want to move them.
~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and edit each line to represent the new names.
- Save the file and that’s it!
