Lightbulb Linux client files location

Hi,

I am proud user of Linux client on Kubuntu 6.06
However, I have one little suggestion: it would be recommended
that client puts its files in other place rather than home directory root (for example .regnum).

Thank you and forgive me for my lousy English

Initially, this irritated me as well. I enjoy keeping my home directory clean. So much so, in fact, that I ended up manually uninstalling Regnum and following the directions here.

Basically, just create a .regnum directory within your home directory, then download and execute the installer there.

Though, I agree - a fix to where it automatically installs to something in the vein of /usr/local/games/ would be nice.

without breeching your system security impossible

you would have to start the game as root everytime before you play, so it could
write the updates into /usr/local/games ... for a game like this, it is indeed better to be installed inside the /home directories

I installed Regnum on "/home/sho/.games/regnum"; however, the game kept making the files on "/home/sho". To solve that annoying issue with regnum dumping all files on your home folder, create a launcher by right-clicking on your desktop and selecting "Create Launcher" (or modify the one you already have) and fill the "Command:" section thus:

Code:
sh -c "cd /home/sho/.games/regnum && ./rolauncher"
Remember to change the directories according to your own. Now move all the game's files (including the "live" and "test" folders) to your regnum directory and run the launcher.
