Since @Levitating adopted this package recently and plans to get it up-to-date soon, I rejected the pending orphan request.

I adopted this and hope to get it up-to-date soon.

Thanks for your hard work on it @Kr1ss

I've pushed an update, the default for both logs and report destinations is now just ., so they'll be stored inside the folder from where dirsearch is invoked.

@LevitatingRein : Make sure you delete the already written data from /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/dirsearch/{logs,reports}, so there won't be any holdovers in case you'll uninstall the package at some point. Or move them to another location. Also, don't forget to restore the group permissions you modified. ;)

Cheers !

Thanks @LevitatingRein !

For the time being, could you set the following in your /etc/dirsearch/default.conf :

report-output-folder = /home/<USERNAME>/.dirsearch/reports
logs-location        = /home/<USERNAME>/.dirsearch/logs

Of course, make sure you use your actual username instead of the placeholders. :)

(E/ or just use different folders as you see fit)

I'll likely add a patch to set these to a location inside /tmp/ or /run/ by default, on a fresh install.

It's saving logs under /usr/lib again.

I get it working by giving myself group permission to the folder but that's not preferable.

Thank you for investigating @dkasak !

I'll submit an update as soon as I'll get to my box.

Though I think the space and the sharp sign need to be swapped in your patch :

sed -i 's/^# \(save-logs-home.*$\)/\1/' default.conf

But I'll check that out. Cheers !

EDIT Oh I see you noticed that in the mean time XD

PS That's the commmit that changed the comment style in the default configuration :)

Ah, the sed regex in prepare() is missing a space so it's failing:

EDIT: fixed the diff, a bit too quick on my fingers. :)

Seems dirsearch is trying to write logs under /usr/lib. This happens when I try executing a search:

Traceback (most recent call last):

    main = Program()
