GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 726174
Brasero does not honour XDG_CACHE_HOME
Last modified: 2018-09-21 17:45:46 UTC
The freedesktop spec states that XDG_CACHE_HOME should be used to point where non essential user data should be stored.
When building brasero and setting XDG_CACHE_HOME to somewhere like /tmp (for example) it touches $HOME/.cache instead (usually /root/.cache). This happens in our build system but does not happen with other packages (brasero unrelated) like clutter-gst (this one touched /root/.cache and setting XDG_CACHE_HOME fixed the problem).
