TLDR: Can I pre-define a stow folder other than
/usr/local with GNU Stow?
I do not have admin privileges on the machine I use for work, and I was told that I could use GNU Stow to manage my installations. The tool looks great, but everywhere in the documentation I read that stow uses
/usr/local as the installation directory where it builds the symlink farm.
Unfortunately this folder was already populated by
root, and I do not have write privileges on anything under
There is a flag
-t that I can use in the command line to specify the target directory, but since I will always be using the same (I want my installations to consistently be under the same target directory), I was wondering if there is a way to use a default path of my choice.
