Change the name of folders?

Hi.
I want to change the name of the folders to my native language (norwegian), as they're in english. Everything else is in norwegian but not my home folders

Rename them except of course the configuration folders.

1 If I just rename them the icons on the folders dissapear.
2. After I change the names of the folders to the norwegian counterpart, if I download something a new folder pops-up with the name Download again.

I've tried this:
xdg-user-dirs-update --force

and
xdg-user-dirs-update --set DOWNLOAD ~/Nedlastinger

but none of them seem to do it sad

Set your language in /etc/locale.gen, /etc/locale.conf, and probably /etc/environment.
Regen locales with "locale-gen", and you should have localized desktop next login.

Re: Change the name of folders?

Thanks Artoo.  /etc/locale.gen, /etc/locale.conf were aleady set but not /etc/enviroment.  Pretty strange. Anyway it's all good now
