Hi!

Thanks a lot for submitting the bug. Sadly I don't have much time lately and I'm unsure I'll find time to fix this soon, but I'd be happy to accept any patches by you or someone else.

Cheers!

JP

was generated during the compile -> was generated during the first run

Basically I compliled gnujump from the upstream source with the default PREFIX (/usr/local)

When I tried to use the version of gnujump provided by Debian I got this error:

Loading theme: /usr/local/share/gnujump/skins/default/config.theme
ERROR: Can open theme file (/usr/local/share/gnujump/skins/default/config.theme).

But the actual path used in debian is "/usr/share/games/gnujump/skins/default". But since the "~/.gnujump/gnujump.cfg" file was generated during the compile, the debian packaged version failed to start for that particular user.

This is potentially a bad design. Is it really necessary for the theme path to be placed in the user config?

Here's the discussion we had in the Debian mailing list for your own reference.
