Dear Gnome community,
Can you please help me fixing this annoying issue of not having anymore the “New Document” contextual (right-click) menu
I’m running two Pop!_OS 21.04 distros, and both include the Files app with version 3.38.2-stable.
In one of them everything is fine, on the other which is my primary workstation I’m facing this problem.
Just to have a cleaner
HOME dir, I wanted to change the location of the Templates folder. So, I followed the hints from this gnome wiki article, and deleted the
Since, I that menu option disappeared, I created it back (
mkdir ~/Templates) and populate it with some text files. But the problem remains, even after the reboot. I don’t know what else should I try.
The current state is:
$ cat ~/.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="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped # homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an # absolute path. No other format is supported. # XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR=$HOME/files/templates $ $ xdg-user-dir TEMPLATES /home/dxps/files/templates $ $ ls /home/dxps/files/templates _ab_.txt 'New File.txt' $
Any hints about it, please?
