Comment 4 for bug 780081

Hi again. I noticed your two posts to me in reverse order. In my other response I posted my best guess that I was using v2.80 from debian unstable. That version does not create a directory under .local.

I've looked in launchpad, and see canonical has realeased version 4, so debian is a bit behind...

As for what I wanted... Well, I dislike having to scroll through a cluttered home directory. I want(ed) no .byobu there. If in version 4, the entry is only a symlink for your convenience, does that mean that users (OK, me) can safely delete the symlink (ie. byobu does not internally use the symlink)?

I'm downloading and upgrading to version 4.

All the best.
