I've set up my system so that another partition is auto-mounted and in my account settings I have the standard destinations for music files, video files, and so on set to folders on that partition.
Now when I start the file manager, there is still the Home folder on the left side with the original standard directories for personal files. By Right click -> Create New -> Basic Link, I can create links to the directories on the other partition.
But I would like for them to appear just like the Public and Template folders, that are still on the Fedora partition.
I guess there are two solutions:
1. Replace the icon for a folder link to a folder icon.
2. In an earlier installation, where /home had its own partition, I've seen those directories as being mounted in some way when using the File Manager and selecting Home in the side bar. I would like to do that if that can be done manually.
Solution 2 would be preferable, but number 1 would probably work just as well. However, I don't know how to do either.
Fedora 17 KDE, by the way.
