[Pkg-lxde-maintainers] Bug#650427: /usr/bin/startlxde: incorrect location for default pcmanfm.conf

Package: lxde-common
Version: 0.5.5-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/startlxde

At the beginning of startlxde is a check for "Ensure the existance of
pcmanfm config file" with a hardcoded path:

    cp /usr/share/lxde/pcmanfm/pcmanfm.conf "$PCMANFM_CONF_DIR/pcmanfm.conf"

That file does not exist, leading to
    cp: cannot stat `/usr/share/lxde/pcmanfm/pcmanfm.conf': No such
file or directory
at the start of newly-created users' .xsession-errors files, and a
missing config file for the program itself.  Since pcmanfm does not
create that file, the error does not go away on its own over time.

The correct source location, as installed by lxde-common, is
/etc/xdg/pcmanfm/LXDE/pcmanfm.conf.  This may be related to bug #649425.
