0003244Doomseeker[All Projects] Bugpublic2017-09-01 16:252018-10-27 22:55
Assigned ToBlzut3 
Platformx86_64OSDebian GNU/LinuxOS Versionbuster/sid
Product Version1.1 
Target Version1.2Fixed in Version1.2 
Summary0003244: /usr/bin is configured as default IWAD and PWAD path
DescriptionA default configuration (or lack of) in Doomseeker adds /usr/bin by default to file paths to scan for IWAD and PWAD files.

The /usr/bin directory is reserved in the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard for user "executable commands on the system". WAD files do not meet this criteria, they belong under the /usr/share directory as architecture-independent data files.
Steps To Reproduce

  1. Ensure no existing user-specific configuration is present (e.g. remove $HOME/.doomseeker).

  2. Run Doomseeker. A message should popup about first-time configuration check.

  3. Check the File Paths tab in configuration.

On a related matter, /usr/share/games/doom/ is not included in the default list. (0003245)

Default list is the directory that the binary is located in and the configuration directory. The former is primarily for Windows where that may be a sane location, but this issue is honestly an oversight on my part since I always tested in my build directory which would be a relatively sane directory for such files.

Directories named bin and MacOS are no longer added by default.

Note: I didn't guard the change in OS ifdefs since the odds of someone actually installing Doomseeker into directories with those names are so tiny that it's not worth making the code ugly over. Especially since the user can just go and manually add the directory if they're so inclined to.

As far as I'm concerned, this ticket is resolved for GNU/Linux and OpenBSD (Unices) in my testing... to the limitation I did not "install" it as a package on those operating systems, but I have a belief it works as intended.

The changes in code are so simple to understand, I'm inclined to say this is resolved without doing any testing on Windows or OS X.

Only one thing surprised me:

if(progBinDirName != "bin" && progBinDirName != "MacOS")

is not written with a logical OR operator, since a directory name ought to not be both at the same time:

if(progBinDirName != "bin" || progBinDirName != "MacOS")

But a logical AND works...

Logical OR/AND: Heh, I get it now. :)
