These were previous mentionsof $HOME/.local. My emeory of things is getting
a bit flawed these days.
I don't think it was a rtecommendation as such. The original wiki before I
modified it had $HOME/.local as the single user location
The thread above seems to also conclude a $HOME/apps location or similar as
a better alternative. i obviously didn't follow up and modify the wiki at
the time. Will put it on the to do list this time.
I couldn't find any earlier references.
I will change the wiki to recommend using a directory under $HOME aka
/home/<user>. I will suggest using $HOME/apps but point out it can be any
directory name the user chooses and can be a hidden directory if the user so
wishes. I will also add some suggestions for alternative ways to include the
executable in the PATH environment as well as a suggestion to include a
launcher in the OS's menu system as per the distro's methods.
