Can you briefly clarify what we are not doing and how we should do it?

Hello,

Place user config directory of Arduino IDE (~/.arduino15) in folder that defined by $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or ~/.config (~/.config/arduino15)

Thank for you suggestion. However, I'm closing this as wontfix. Many apps store their conf in folders other from .config. We won't change an old feature such as using ~/.arduino15, even if not compliant with freedesktop standards

I guess migrating to ~/.config might be useful at some point (perhaps also putting toolchains etc. in ~/.local/lib or so), but it's tricky to get the upgrade path right I'm afraid.

But also many apps use ~/.config

@matthijskooijman Is it that hard?
