​Thanks to you and Marcus for this information. I forgot to add that I
routinely install the Freedesktop "desktop interface". I'm sure it's some
sort of Linux environment settings that aren't be detected correctly.  ​

locations get changed and/or the names themselves.​ When I get a moment, I
will investigate further.​
