Hello,

Linux. How?

It gives me incorrect path of the expected one.

I expect this:

/home/user/.mozilla

It returns me this:

/home/user/Desktop/build-test-Desktop_Qt_5_11_2_GCC_64bit-Debug/bin/~/.mozilla

P.S. I'm new to Linux so sorry for the probably stupid question.

"~" is a shell variable (bash/sh/etc), so that won't work here.

What you probably want is QStandardPaths::HomeLocation.

Thanks! I've also found QDir::home().
