No. By default, it points to /home/`whoami`/Desktop, which is empty by
default. (There used to be some default entries in the good old RHL days,
but these days, there aren't any, except for the live image, which has
liveinst there by default.) We could probably ship some default entries in
some kde-sig-default-desktop package (though I'm not sure about where to
install them too: I guess /etc/skel/Desktop, but xdg-user-dirs also
translates the directory names, plus I don't know if /etc/skel isn't
supposed to be reserved for the local admin, it's empty in current Fedora),
but it'd affect all desktops if installed.
Apologies, then. Since the first thing I do is reset the folderview to a
remote directory I never really see the default.
IIRC the old desktop used to have links to ~/ and Trash - I guess having those
on the desktop by default would work well for many people.
