    Hi,
    I’m a Arch Linux packager. The current software version does not respect Linux packaging, could you please add the following patches:

    https://ptpb.pw/FmKZ.patch
    https://ptpb.pw/Jkcp.patch

    Please notice, only the parts related to self.isLinux are needed, the rest of the patch was added by my vim, as it automatically fixes python syntax.

    Thanks for fantastic software,
    Serge, https://keybase.io/ser

    Hi Serge,

    Thanks for the info. I did an online search and confirmed the newer convention on Linux is to store user-specific data rooted in a unified ~/.local/share/, per your patch. I’ll be sure to include this change in the next release.

    Btw thepatch as written wont have the desired effect – it’s setting the local variable ‘applicationSupportDir’ but not using that variable to modify g.appDataDir, which is the variable that will actually determine the data directory airnef uses. To resolve this you can modify the patch to set ‘g.appDataDir’ instead of ‘applicationSupportDir’.

    Hi, thanks!
    It might be I’ve included the wrong patch, my intention was to use g.appDataDir.

    Thanks for accepting the idea, I packed the original in AUR:

    https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/python-airnef/

    but obviously it won’t work until your next version release.
