Use g_get_user_cache_dir() for debug output
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:26:37 EST
It would be nice to use g_get_user_config_dir() instead of home directory to store configuration files. In accordance with the XDG base directory spec. http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html
This has a number of benefits including making it much easier to migrate data.
The only thing virt-manager stores in home is debug output, so we probably want get_user_cache_dir

I don't think writing log files to home is a good idea either. I think we want this information to end up in the systemd journal.

If you want this to be solved quicker, please provide a patch.
I am planning of fixing this when we port to gtk3, since that will already be disruptive enough that it will be a good time to change directory locations.
Just a question, when do you plan to port to GTK3?
Most of the work is done but its not upstream yet. I'm hoping to get it upstream before the end of the year, with a release soon after.
Is this bug still open?
Fixed upstream now
