Edit “Places” sidebar in Nautilus

Have you unintentionally deleted any folder from home directory , and now accessing it from the sidebar gives the following error :


Open any text editor you like and provide the non-working path:

vim ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs


There must be a folder named “Pictures” in the home directory to be able to access it from the “Places” menu.

Now Save this file. (:wq)

Execute this command:

nautilus -q

Open nautilus again, then try it.
