Issue #680 resolved

love.filesystem error

I'm doing some experimentation with Linux in a VM and decided to give LOVE a try in there as well. Apparently my Debian minimal install does not recognize $XDG_DATA_HOME and my home directory has no .local so LOVE cannot create the necessary directories for file system operations. If I manually create a .local everything works fine, however this situation breaks any game that uses love.filesystem operations.

I'm not well versed in the inner workings of linux, but would it be possible to create a .local directory if one does not exist, or craft some other workaround that doesn't require manual intervention if neither love.filesystem path is working correctly?

P.S. Ensayia here. I guess Bitbucket wants to use my real name? I'll have to get that fixed.
