I agree with John. Considering what XDG_DATA_DIRS was originally set to I would argue it
should not be set at all in the first place. "/usr/share:/usr/share" really makes no sense and
If you set it somewhere like that you should unset it. If Suse set it, ask to remove/fix it.
As I said before when XDG_DATA_DIRS is unset, glib will automatically look in /usr/share and
/usr/local/share. So if these two are the only locations that matter, XDG_DATA_DIRS should
By the way if you would have followed my other advice of installing in (for example) /opt
rather than /usr/local the build process would have taken care of setting XDG_DATA_DIRS
appropriately for you. It will not do this when you are installing in either /usr or /usr/local as
these are special installation directories.
But I'm glad you managed to get GnuCash running anyway.
