FILES

The following data lists the locations Geeqie uses for various actions. The uppercase symbols are environment variables. If they are not set on your system the fallback locations are listed in parentheses. Geeqie will first attempt to load a configuration file from:

/etc/geeqie/geeqierc.xml

It will then continue with the following locations. Most of Geeqie's configuration files are contained in the folder, and sub-folders of:

$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/geeqie/ ($~/.config/geeqie/)

Geeqie's standard configuration file is:

.../geeqierc.xml

An alternative configuration file may be used by executing:

geeqie -r --config-load:<filename>

Geeqie-created desktop files used by Plugins are in the folder:

.../applications

Lua script files for Lua Extensions are in the folder:

.../lua

Historic data such as last several folders visited, bookmarks, and recently used collections, as well as default print settings are contained in this text file:

.../history

Keyboard shortcut maps are contained in this text file:

.../accels

The location for Collections is in the folder:

$XDG_DATA_HOME/geeqie/collections
($~/.local/share/geeqie/collections)

The lirc Infra-red controller configuration file must be located at:

$HOME/.lircrc

Thumbnails are stored in a location specified in Thumbnail Preferences

Metadata is stored either in the image file or in the location specified in Safe Delete

The safe delete folder is specified in the Metadata tab of main Preferences
