Sorry, my bad. Please disregard.

On my machine (under "testing" and "community-testing" repos), it creates: "/usr/lib/perl5/5.26/vendor_perl/auto/Linux/DesktopFiles/", which is the correct path.

Version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker:

$ perl -MExtUtils::MakeMaker -E 'say $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::VERSION'
7.3

Probably, you have to delete the following directories:

/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl/
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/

...then reinstall this package.

Probably you have Perl installed inside the $HOME directory by perlbrew. If the output of the command "which perl" is something different than "/usr/bin/perl", then try to execute "perlbrew switch-off" to revert to system perl.

For reasons I can't figure out, this keeps installing to my home directory.

The contents of $pkgdir are /home/joe/perl5/[..]
