Yes you are right, however, the path where plugins, and other projects are
written, must be in the same part where creepy be installed, for this
reason, do not think just patch the code to write in /var/lib solve the

In fact I have discussed this issue with upstream, which says:

*"Regarding 2, its obvious that the user who runs the program has no
permissions to write under /usr/share/creepy , should it be this way ?
Isn't that chowned to the user account in Debian ? If not, then we need to
find a different approach because the program needs to save projects and
plugin configurations, if it does not have the permission to write to that
directory , how could it be done ? "*

Coul you give me  a hand? :)
