Fix: [CMake] Restore 'games' as default install bindir #8629

merged 1 commit into from Feb 7, 2021

@glx22 glx22 commented Jan 31, 2021

Closes #8599

Motivation / Problem

On Debian-based distributions, the executable should go to <prefix>/games, not <prefix>/bin.
Before switching to CMake, our old configure used to default to <prefix>/games.
Our CMake script uses GNUInstallDirs, which defaults to <prefix>/bin


I restored games as default install bin dir, like it was in configure. We already set default data dir to share/games anyway.


Package maintainers will need to set CMAKE_INSTALL_BINDIR if default doesn't match their target OS, but they are already used to do similar with the old configure.
