View Full Version : [ubuntu] pkgconfig location

April 16th, 2010, 02:37 PM
I am a developer that is starting to package some debs for distribution. In doing so I found that some packages use /usr/lib/pkgconfig to store their .pc files and others use /usr/share/pkgconfig. I believe share is a more appropriate place as lib should only hold the actual libraries but I also believe I should follow the standard. So long story short: is the standard shifting from lib to share? Which one should I put them in?
