USER-DIRS.CONF(5)                               USER-DIRS.CONF(5)

     NAME
          user-dirs.conf - configuration for xdg-user-dirs-update

     DESCRIPTION
          The /etc/xdg/user-dirs.conf file is a text file that
          controls the behavior of the xdg-user-dirs-update command.
          Users can have their own ~/.config/user-dirs.conf file,
          which overrides the system-wide configuration.

          The following keys are recognised:

          enabled=boolean
              When set to False, xdg-user-dirs-update will not change
              the XDG user dirs configuration.

          filename_encoding=encoding
              This sets the filename encoding to use.  encoding can be
              an explicit encoding name, such as UTF-8, or "locale",
              which means the encoding of the users locale will be
              used.

          Lines beginning with a # character are ignored.

     ENVIRONMENT
          XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
              The system-wide user-dirs.conf file is located in this
              directory. The default is /etc/xdg.

          XDG_CONFIG_HOME
              The per-user user-dirs.conf file is located in this
              directory. The default is $HOME/.config.
