xdg-user-dirs-update [OPTION...] [--set NAME PATH...]

       xdg-user-dirs-update updates the current state of the users
       user-dirs.dir. If none existed before then one is created based on the
       system default values, or falling back to the old non-translated
       filenames if such directories exists. The list of old directories used
       are: ~/Desktop, ~/Templates and ~/Public.

       If an old configuration exists it is updated with any new default
       directories. Additionally, any configured directories that point to
       non-existing locations are reset by pointing then to the users home
       directory. This typically happens when the users removed the directory,
       so they likely don't want to use it anymore.

       On the first run a user-dirs.locale file is created containing the
       locale that was used for the translation. This is used later by gui
       tools like xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update to detect if the locale was
       changed, letting you to migrate from the old names.

       xdg-user-dirs-update is normally run automatically at the start of a
       user session to update the XDG user dirs according to the users locale.

       The following options are understood:

           Print help output and exit.

           Update existing user-dirs.dir, but force a full reset. This means:
           Don't reset nonexisting directories to HOME, rather recreate the
           directory. Never use backwards compatible non-translated names.
           Always recreate user-dirs.locale.

       --dummy-output PATH
           Write the configuration to PATH instead of the default
           configuration file. Also, no directories are created.

       --set NAME PATH
           Sets the XDG user dir with the given name.

           NAME should be one of the following:

           PATH must be an absolute path, e.g.  $HOME/Some/Directory.
