Hardcoded path for theme files
|Reported by:||wjp||Owned by:||wjp|
Since 0.9.0, scummvm comes with a number of data files (modern.ini, modern.zip) that it has to be able to find. On most linux systems, the default place to put such files is $prefix/share/scummvm.
I'd like to add this directory to the standard search path for themes, and was thinking of the following:
* add 'datadir' to configure similar to the current 'mandir'/'bindir'. (So with a --datadir switch, defaulting to /usr/share.)
* add -DDATA_PATH=\"$_datadir/scummvm\" to the compiler flags, or maybe put it in config.h.
* let ThemeNew.cpp call addDefaultDirectory(DATA_PATH) if DATA_PATH is defined.
The attached patch implements this, and I have in fact added this to the Fedora Core packages for 0.9.0.
Any comments/suggestions? Would this be useful for other platforms as well? If so, please add a reply about which directory your platform could use.
