With standard automake tools, you would use "configure" with the "--prefix" option.  LMMS, though, uses cmake, so you change the install path with a command like:

cmake (path to root lmms dir) -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr

or whichever path you want to install to.  The default prefix is "/usr/local" as you pointed out.

my LMMS (from the "clean" git repo) looks for plugins in /usr/local/lib/... How can I set this to another, specific path? I'd like to make some compilations and do not like to use make install each time.
Hope it is okay to ask something that simple here. Thanks very much for help.
Kind regards,
