0003244Doomseeker[All Projects] Bugpublic2017-09-01 16:252017-09-06 02:33
Assigned ToBlzut3 
Platformx86_64OSDebian GNU/LinuxOS Versionbuster/sid
Product Version1.1 
Target Version1.2Fixed in Version 
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.
