Bug Description

File /usr/share/doc/pastebinit/README says:

"To enable support for private pastebins, first you will need to know the fields
that are in use by the pastebin when posting data.

Add a file in the ~/pastebin.d or /etc/pastebin.d/ directory"

but the right directory to add local user pastebin conf files is:


This extract from /usr/bin/pastebinit confirms it:

    def preloadPastebins():
        # Check several places for config files:
        # - global config in /etc/pastebin.d
        # - for source checkout, config in the checkout
        # - user's overrides in ~/.pastebin.d
        # Files found later override files found earlier.
        pastebind = {}
        for confdir in ['/usr/share/pastebin.d', '/etc/pastebin.d',
                                os.path.realpath(__file__)), 'pastebin.d')]:
