In almost any program, when I click on
open, a file chooser dialog opens as shown below. This dialog shows
Desktop and so on.
This is extremely annoying. I am not using
Desktop to store data, and I don't care about
Recent. I would like to get consistently same view each time the open dialog appears, regardless of what I happen to have opened recently.
Also, it can be seen on my screenshot, how idiotic this dialog window is. I have
tmpfs mounted on
/tmp, and another
tmpfs mounted in
Yet, in the
Locations list, these two mountpoints are only referred to as
tmp and are indistinguishable.
Ideally on the left, I would like to see my home directory in the upper part, and plain good old filesystem tree starting with
/ in the lower part.
Or maybe even better, only show filesystem tree on the left, but with current location
/home/<user>/ alredy "pre-selected" automatically, and contents of my
home displayed on the right.
I can remove
Recent by adding the following to
But still, Desktop is there in the upper part, and the absolute chaos of randomly assembled shares is there in the lower part.
In GTK2/GTK3 how can I bring back some order and logic to the file chooser, as described above ?
Update June, 2020: I am using Openbox on Debian 10, with GTK3 library without any desktop environment. Also I have updated the screenshot.
