Hi Michael,

Thank you for your patches.

You are right that generated ivi-shell/weston.ini file is not suitable to use anywhere else than build directory.
It is not usable as it is in RFS of an embedded device.

But I did not understand how you fixed this problem with your proposed patches.
After I applied your patches and build weston in Yocto environment. 
Generated weston.ini is still not suitable for the RFS.




input method path is correct for the RFS but launcher paths are still showing build or source directory.

Furthermore, ivi-shell/weston.ini file is generated for unit tests of weston, which are executed in build directory.
Unit tests of weston would not work with this weston.ini, because input method path is not showing the correct path in build directory.

I think generated weston.ini file in build directory has to stay as it is because of unit tests.
But we can maybe generate a different weston.ini file in installation phase with install hooks.

Best Regards,
Emre Ucan
