ICEauthority file in $HOME and in $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR
I hope this is the right place to post this. I'm having a problem with the .ICEauthority file which I think maybe a bug.
I have upgaded from XUbuntu 18.04.5 (which uses libICE 1.0.9) to Xubuntu 20.04.1 (which uses libICE 1.0.10).
This bug issue report #2 (closed)
says that the libICE now uses $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR path to store the ICEauthority file if the ICEAUTHORITY environment variable is not set.
So, after upgrading Xubuntu, I deleted my $HOME/.ICEauthority file and rebooted. It then created the file $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/ICEauthority, it also created $HOME/.ICEauthority although the one in $HOME is an empty file.
It seems that this is a bug, it seems that its correctly writing to the file $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/ICEauthority, although its also (incorrectly) creating a file $HOME/.ICEauthority
Just before I posted this, I remembered that I also have Opensuse Tumbleweed installed. I tested this issue with Tumbleweed and it had the same result as above.
Please can you advise me on this?
