Hi,

launchy currently saves its config file (launchy.ini) and database
(launchy.db) in the users home dir not even bothering to save them as
dot-files. This is not nice.

The best thing IMHO would be to conform to the XDG directory specification[1].

Best regards, Thomas Koch

  I basically agree with you. Anyway, since it works, being not nice
  is not a bug but more a feature request ;-) so fixing severity.

  I've forwarded this upstream, but if you have a patch for this I'll
  be glad to add it to the Debian packaging in the meantime.

  best regards,
