Ubuntu – Where does Nautilus store bookmark names


If I create a bookmark with Nautilus, its location is stored on ~/.gtk-bookmarks, but not its name.

I've created a test bookmark named weirdy, and tried to do a grep on my home for that name, and I found nothing.

Where does Nautilus store bookmark names?

Best Answer

  • They are stored in the ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks file

    In older versions of Ubuntu they are stored in the ~/.gtk-bookmarks file.

    The format is:

    file:///path/to/folder Bookmark_name

    You can also specify other location protocols such as SFTP, FTP, or SMB:

    sftp://username@hostname/path/to/folder Bookmark_name
