The newer version seems to ship a bunch of crud in /opt/. Did I make a mistake in my package.yml or should this be moved to a different directory?

Main reason for updating this application is because there's a really annoying "A newer version is available" notification whenever you open it.

I would suggest shifting /opt/Simplenote to /usr/share/simplenote, testing and confirming that it works (I do expect it to as they release a tarball build which is the same but without set directories).

However, you will likely need to patch the .desktop file to point to just simplenote, as I imagine it is pointing to /opt where it thinks it will be installed.

To confirm specifically after changing the directory:

  • simplenote in terminal loads simplenote
  • Can be launched from the menu entry
  • Simplenote continues to work correctly

Can we make this a full link

ln -sv /usr/share/simplenote/simplenote $installdir/usr/bin/simplenote

Moved everything in /opt/Simplenote to /usr/share/simplenote and patched the .desktop file.
