Summary0001310: Linux XDG support for savegames
DescriptionThis is just a feature request regarding the placement of the .vcmi folder. The XDG specification on Linux ( [^]) would suggest using the variable XDG_DATA_HOME+vcmi/ and if that isn't available, using instead ".local/share/vcmi/".

I've found this sample implementation: [^]

I know about this issue. Probably will be implemented for 0.94.

This one will have to wait till 0001688 is fixed, othervice chance to run into issues is just too big.

According to specs these are directories that we will use:
$XDG_DATA_HOME, default: $HOME/.local/share
User data, e.g. mods, save games, place for H3 files when installed via vcmibuilder

$XDG_CONFIG_HOME, default: $HOME/.config
Location of user config files (mod settings + game settings)

$XDG_CACHE_HOME, default: $HOME/.cache
Cached & temporary files, mostly for launcher, maybe also for logs(?)

List of global data directories, will be used insead/along with DATA_DIR
