Unfortunately, this app hard wires “/home” as the home directory. Over the years, I have been bitten very hard by installations deciding to clobber everything in “/home” because the install software knows I don’t need anything there anymore. Consequently, almost TWO DECADES ago, I put my /home data into a separate file system and then replaced /home with a symlink into that /hidden file system. I’ve been a happy camper ever since, until I needed to install this snapcraft thingy. It seems I will need to modify the source and force it to accept an installation parameter that wires /home to /hidden. Where are the sources and build requirements, please? Thank you!
I have gone to GitHub and cloned the project, btw. That got me to a long series of one-at-a-time dependency failures. I ended with a libudev failure. I have libudev, but it’s configure script says I don’t. So, obviously, the presence testing is misleading in its message. It must be I need libudev-devel, but I can’t find it.
