Re: Relative path in game? SOLVED

PS: I would completly ignore all those Unix FAQs that tell you relocation is a bad thing, since they assume source distribution and that the user compiles himself, which however today is simply totally outdated, especially for games. Old Unix FAQs are probally the worst advise if you want to make your users life easier.

All the commercial and free games I have installed do follow the FHS, putting their data in /usr/local/games/<name of the game>, their binaries in /usr/local/bin/ and their user files in ~/.<name_of_the_game>. I fail to see why you do think this way of doing things is outdated.
