Bug Description

The GUI interface doesn't reflect the terminal window contents. I suppose it's a language problem in the edubuntu user. Other users are OK.
See the attached screen-shot.

Hello Sandra
Yes probably is something related to localization, but I cannot understand how many Desktop dir Edubuntu has.
If Desktop is translated to Scrivania why Desktop is listable ?

affects: xorg (Ubuntu) → edubuntu-live (Ubuntu)

edubuntu user has just one Desktop directory correctly displayed by
the ls shell command, but the GUI interface names it Scrivania as I
chose the italian language; the Scrivania directory in not present if
I look at the home directory using ls shell command. If I log out and
log in again the Desktop/Scrivania contents are correctly displayed.
I suppose some link is not correctly managed. If I create a new user
its home directory has no Desktop directory but just Scrivania
directory, so no problem exists. The problem just concerns the built
in edubuntu user.

The problem is still present in the today (2012-02-28) build, so I change it from fixed to confirmed

Changed in edubuntu-live (Ubuntu):

no longer affects: edubuntu

Do you mean that the problem affects only the live version?

Confirmed in the today (2012-03-01) build

edubuntu - version 2012-03-05. Confirmed.

In the today (2012-03-08) build the problem is present also for users different from edubuntu

The problem seems to be fixed in the today (2012-03-12) build

Confirmed in the today (2012-13-03) edubuntu build! It'really strange it seems to be fixed, but then it appears again.

Changed in edubuntu-live (Ubuntu):
status: Fix Released → Confirmed

I think it's a localisation problem: see also 951397 and 952749. Something is wrong when translating directory names.

Note: I am using an edubuntu live version (usb persistent)

Confirmed.
I also noticed that it's "Desktop" showing the home directory, but it's "Scrivania" on the side pane. (See screenshot)
