#7229 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add game data search path?

Reported by: (none) Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Port: Linux

Forwarded from Debian bug #152979.

Package: scummvm
Severity: wishlist

I'd like to see a default search path for the games. I
see you provide
the directory /usr/lib/scummvm/ - which I assume is for
global installs
of games. I feel that looking for the games
respectively in ".",
"~/(something/game_to_start)", and
if a path isn't provided on the command line or the
configuration file
is a good idea. Right now only "." is searched.

for more info.

Not really a good idea in my eyes (and shows a very Unix centric
world view, but that's another matter :-). You can configure each
game you want in your preference/config file. The launcher makes
this easy enough, after all. I.e. I can easily configure a dozen
games in arbitrary paths within 5 minutes using it.
