Re: Location for user installed plugin libraries and icons
Maybe it would be preferable to use the XDG recommendation ?
App configuration, and plugins configuration too:
User installed plugins resources:
*where MyTLD is a top-level unique 'domain' that avoids name clashing

I am working on a user driven plugin management process for an
application which is installed via a 'deb' file. The application is
installed using 'root' privileges, but the plugins need to be
installable by the user without root privileges. The plugins will
consist of libs, icons, etc. that are used to 'run' the plugin and user
updateable config files used to 'control' the plugin.
If the plugin was installed by a 'deb' file it would put libs and
supplied icons in a system area, i.e. /usr or /usr/local, and the
updateable config files in a user writeable area, i.e.
$HOME/.<application>/. What would be a suitable location for the libs,
icons, etc. for the user installed plugin?
