Bug Description

I would like easy access to files in a directory under ~/.local/share/.../.../ on a mobile device (Aquaris M10 tablet). It would be useful to create bookmarks/shortcuts in the "Places" part of File Manager, or at least have File Manager see symlinks that I create in my home folder using the terminal.

I've been browsing through the source code and this

kinda looks like there is support for a places.conf file somewhere that would affect the shortcuts/favorites in the places bar. I can't figure out where to put it or what to put into the file. Anybody has an idea?
