Configuration file locations

The ModelBuilder (and ParaView) user settings directories are determined by the following logic (from ParaView’s vtkInitializationHelper`):

Windows:
${APPDATA}/<APPLICATION_NAME>/<ORGANIZATION_NAME>/*

*NIX:

  1. ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/<ORGANIZATION_NAME>/*
  2. ${HOME}/.config/<ORGANIZATION_NAME>/*

For ModelBuilder, ORGANIZATION_NAME is currently Kitware Inc. and APPLICATION_NAME is modelbuilder.

For ParaView, ORGANIZATION_NAME and APPLICATION_NAME are ParaView.

This just recently changed as previously (as in the 6.0.0 release) it was .config/modelbuilder. Kitware Inc. is a problematic naming standard on Linux due to the fact that space has to be escaped or double quoated.

@chart3388 Ah, makes sense. I have just changed ModelBuilder’s ORGANIZATION_NAME back to modelbuilder.
