Show when a bookmark is inaccessible
Submitted by Stefan Knorr
It would be great if Nautilus could check whether its sidebar bookmarks and quick links are accessible before a user clicks them and (potentially) gets an error.
This would help e.g. if someone deleted or renamed their e.g. "Videos" or "Documents" dir.
My proposal would be just to show a tomato-with-belt icon ( http://www.nitrodesign.com/designforlife/wp-content/gallery/icons/thumbs/thumbs_no-way.jpg ) next to the bookmark in the list.
The alternate solution of removing or hiding the bookmark would not work well with bookmarks that may legitimately not be available some of the time, such as network shares.
Additionally, when deleting a dir from within Nautilus, it would be nice if Nautilus could check whether the dir is bookmarked and offer to delete the bookmark too.
