lol ok, if I've successfully compiled a binary file on Linux, where should I move it to so it's in my PATH?
@schlink what kind of application (like, totally essential for the system especially in the early phases of booting or not?) and installing it as a super user or not?
It's the default systemd and xdg-user-dirs location for a users executables.
Since I use Arch and it's easy to make packages, I'd wrire one that adds files in /usr prefix.
I use /usr/local/bin for symlinking (e.g. vim to neovim or redshift to gammastep).
For other things I use ~/.local/bin or a custom path in my home (voting this option).
@schlink On my current install, I only got symlinks created by pipx in ~/.local/bin, and some scripts in ~/Scripts
@schlink I use scripts for using a light theme on apps that do not work well with a dark theme (like Firefox for example, due to some websites not dealing with it).
exec /usr/bin/firefox "$@"
