hey! i'm using a tiling window manager with no desktop/icons/etc.
all the Pico-8 functions which save files to the desktop try to save to ~/Desktop, a directory which i didn't have.. it just says "saved screenshot to desktop" etc and does nothing. if i create that directory it works of course.
i tried changing XDG_DESKTOP_DIR (which is i think the standard global environment variable used to set Desktop location) but Pico-8 doesn't seem to pick up the change, still tries to save to ~/Desktop.
not really a big deal - i'm just fussy and don't like capitalised directory names =) - but is there any way to change this? thanks!
I don't know the actual answer, but I have hacky suggestions to work around the problem.
You could make a symlink from ~/Desktop to wherever you want the screen shots to end up. This will still show up as a folder though.
Alternatively you could write a wrapper script which does roughly
pico-8 # Not sure if this is the right name for linux
cp ~/Desktop/* wherever/you/want/them
rm -r ~/Desktop
