I am giving up this package. The upstream developers do not care about linux and it is not possible to make pkhex save its config file and databases in another directory as it is installed. Therefore, installing it in the /opt dir is useless, as it cannot write its config files there, unless you make the installation directory world readable or something.

Simply unzip the upstream zip file somewhere in your personal home directory, create your own .desktop file and save it ~/.local/share/applications. You might want to add the installation path to your $PATH and create a little wrapper script in order to run it from the command line.

If you want pkhex to behave on linux systems, file a bug report at upstream. That won't help much, though. Upstream is not interested in providing support for GNU/Linux systems..

That is tricky. PKHeX is designed to run on windows, and thus it creates its backup directories in the directory it is installed in.

I have not found any info on the pkhex webseite, how to enable user-specific backup directories.

I guess in this case it is the if you install pkhex manually in a directory inside your home directory. You can adapt and re-use the startup script and .desktop file, as you see fit.

Could this be installed anywhere other than /opt? It tries to create backups in it's own install directory. On my system /opt is read-only, which I prefer.
