When using the above option, files other than ini are placed in "~/.xnviewmp" folder instead.
This doesn't occur in windows version.

A problem remains when choosing program folder for 'other' files:

1. Choose a custom folder to place other files.
2. Try program. Restart.
3. Change setting for 'other' files to 'xnview'.
4. *The db file is becomes misnamed and placed in program's parent folder.

Code: Select all

/home/user/prog/xnviewlxXnView.db
Settings:
[Start]
otherFlag=1
otherFolder=/home/user/mnt/q/wip_q/xnviewlx/

Program directory I'm using: /home/user/prog/xnviewlx

Switching from "user" to "XnView" creates a new "xnviewlxXnView.db" above the program folder in v.0.26 (and this db is used).
If program folder is renamed "mp", then the db created is called "mpXnView.db"

Settings:
before:

Code: Select all

otherFlag=0
otherFolder=
after

Code: Select all

otherFlag=1
otherFolder=
