I agree that the linux install could be improved. I would like the installed data tree to be separate from the code tree, optionally.

I would like to be able to put the code in /opt/kicad or /home/dick/kicad and cannot do that now. And I would like to put the data tree in /home/dick/kicaddata for example.

CMake would need to spit out some C++ code containing the selected paths and then that would be used instead of the hard coded paths in gestfiche.cpp

There may be ways, but this seems workable to me.
