TDE applications are run from menus and icons.  TDE users don't
care that the executable is called /opt/trinity/bin/kmail.  They
care that clicking on KMail works as they expect and that it
works well.

Google Earth is also in /opt and AFAIK not in any major distros.
Go and tell Larry and Sergey they're doing it all wrong and they'll
explain to you that as Google Earth is an add-on application like
TDE rather than a distro like Debian the correct place for both TDE
and Google Earth is /opt, not /usr.

If and when a distro such as Devuan were to include TDE then they
would probably install it in /usr.  But TDE users wouldn't notice
and wouldn't care.  And TDE would still go in /opt when added to
systems built from other distros.

You are sending a lot of emails, and closing bug reports that are
not yet fixed, but I don't see you actually fixing any bugs or
doing anything constructive.

TDE software works and works well.  Therefore the TDE project is
working and working well.
