I would like to know if it would be possible to add a feature to the application?
Could you implement a feature that once the application start for the first time it will check for and create all the necessary user directories?
I can't remember how the Ubuntu installation handles this and if it is created by default with install, but it would be much easier to port to other distros if the application handled this by itself.
The reason being, I got a talking to for trying to use a script to create the needed directories automatically, they say it ain't ethical to meddle with a users home directory.
Honestly I cannot see the difference if the script creates the directories or if the software does, it is all the same to me...
It is not a huge deal, I now just have to put a warning at the end of installation telling users to do this on their own, but it would be a "nice" feature.
