In $HOME/.config/user-dirs.dirs I changed the line:
and commented out the rest.
This removed the icons from the desktop, but also recreated those
Pictures ... etc. dirs.
Then I tried this:
# This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update
# If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're
# interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run
# Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped
# homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an
# absolute path. No other format is supported.
and it seems to work (no icons, no dirs) however I don't know if it has
any side effect or not.
Uninstalling xdg-user-dirs is not possible since Gnome depends on it. In
