comment Which application should I blame for compulsively creating a directory again and again?
It probably doesn't help you if you aren't using an environment trying to comply. The display manager could be the culprit, but I doubt it is the case and it would do it at each login. Installation procedures could well assume a complying environment, but the directory wouldn't be empty afterwards if it tried to put something on the Desktop.

comment Use the system Compose database in Gtk applications
Those who aren't working have their own set of compose combinations. They aren't taking the locale into account to choose the Compose data base. Modifying the system provided one on another machine where I've root access hasn't any effect on them.

comment Use the system Compose database in Gtk applications
I copied the whole /usr/share/x11/locale directory, modified my copy, and used XLOCALEDIR to point to it. I didn't found about ~/.XCompose, it is simpler but it doesn't change which applications works and doesn't. (Emacs built to use GTK works, but emacs tend to do things in its own way)

comment Is there a way to combine a file with crontab?
I've difficulties to understand what you really want, but I wonder if at wouldn't be a better solution than modifying the crontab.
