File location test

To whoever is able to build Stellarium on non-Linux platforms:

  • Please see if build works with respect to the locations of files (I moved code from elsewhere into StelFileMgr, but don't have access to non-linux machines to do a test build).
  • Report where files end up. It is not clear to me where this is on non-POISX systems, as the location is determined by a system call unfamiliar to me.

I would like to know the following for the user guide:

  1. Installation directory - the name of the directory where the nebulae, scripts, skycultures, landscapes etc. are installed.
  2. Location of config.ini (the version which is saved when clicking save in the config window, not the default_config.ini file)
  3. Location where screenshots get saved
  4. Location where recorded scripts get saved.

Please enter your results in this table:
