comment user-dirs.dirs reset at start-up
hey @lcd047. I tried your solution (see above in my edited post, thank you), but sadly it didn't work... Do I have any other options to try?

it's Debian Stretch x64 with Gnome 3 desktop. Should be exactly as you stated...

I tried editing ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and pointed to the symlinks (like XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Downloads" not to the "real" path /mnt/home-big-data/user/Downloads. I didn't run xdg-user-dirs-update but I rebooted the computer - the changes in ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs were reverted. Did I make a mistake (except not running xdg-user-dirs-update)? (I hope that's not a stupid question, I cannot try it at the moment as I'm not home)
