3 Adjust Marble's search path for the maps and data
If you want to install Marble's data into a different place than the system
default then read on: There are several ways to adjust the path where Marble
is drawing it's data from:
3.1 At Compiletime
Use the cmake option -DMARBLE_DATA_PATH to specify the built-in system path
that Marble gathers its data from:
cmake -DQTONLY=ON -DMARBLE_DATA_PATH /mnt1/marble/data ~/marble
3.2 "At Runtime"
There are two solutions to adjust the data path for a precompiled Marble
a) Enter a key and a value
to the config file "marblerc" or "~/.config/KDE/Marble\ Desktop\ Globe.conf"
and (re)start the application.
b) Start Marble using the command line option --marbleDataPath:
marble --marbleDataPath ~/marble/data
