    I get an error message:

    LiVES was unable to use the temporary directory
    /media/SATA/lives_temp/livestmp/

    Please check the <tempdir> setting in
    /home/me/.lives and try again.


    I get no chance to correct the error, because LiVES closes immediately.

    The <tempdir> setting in /home/me/.lives cannot be checked because that directory does not exist.

    There is a .lives-dir but that is empty.

    There used to be /media/SATA/ but it crashed.

    O have tried uninstalling and reinstalling LiVES, but it keeps looking for /media/SATA/lives_temp/livestmp/ so there must be a file hidden somewhere that I need to fix. Where do you store things?

      /home/me/.lives is a file, not a directory. You can either delete it or edit it and update the value of <tempdir>.
