Redirected folders or Symlinks


Running Crossover on Linux. Everything has been working great, but I'd like to make the open/save dialog boxes a little more accessible. Meaning, there's a link on the left for "My Documents" and that's a link to my Documents folder in my linux home directory.

In there, I guess something (not sure if it was Crossover or a Windows app I installed) created My Pictures, My Music, etc in the Documents folder. This is fine except that with Gnome the defaults for these is just ~/Music, ~/Videos, etc.

Is there any way to A) Add more links to the bar on the left of the Open/Save dialog box, and/or B) Make a link from the My Music to ~/Music and other folders? I tried creating symlinks but they don't appear in the filesystem at all (is there something I have to do to make WINE follow Symlinks?)

It's not the end of the world or anything but it can get old having to open the Computer link, then browse to the Y drive, then pick the folder.. Every single time.



You can change which location the windows-centric 'My Documents' is referenced
to inside you home dir using winecfg.

Start cxsetup (or cxbottlemanager)=>highlight the (a) bottle=>click Configure=>Contral Panel=>winecfg

Once the wincfg configuration GUI pops-up, click on the 'Desktop Intergration' tab -- this
gives you the means to modify the targets you mention.

Is that what you were after?
