Una configuracion que suelo querer hacer (odio el tener 2 cosas, Home y Desktop) y de una vez para otra no me acuerdo como.

Lo pregunté en StackExchange.com, aquí está la respuesta.

Este artículo tambien lo explica bien.

Copia local del artículo, por si desaparece:

Not only can you change your desktop folder, you can change the location of any other folder Ubuntu creates for you in your home folder, like Documents or Music – and this works in any Linux distribution using the Gnome desktop manager.

Edit $HOME/.config/user-dirs.dirs

Should be something like:

# This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update
# If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're
# interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run
# Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped
# homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an
# absolute path. No other format is supported.

Change the entry associated with XDG_DESKTOP_DIR to the folder you want to be shown as your desktop.

Note: The ~ shortcut for the home directory won’t work in this file (use $HOME for that), but an absolute path (i.e. a path starting with “/”) will work.

Feel free to change the locations of the other folders as well.

Save and close user-dirs.dirs. At this point you can either log off and then log back on to get your desktop back, or open a terminal window Applications > Accessories > Terminal and enter:

killall nautilus

Nautilus (the file manager in Gnome) will restart itself and display your newly chosen folder as the desktop!
