Where's the WADs dir in Linux?

Hi First, thank you! I've been waiting for a long time to have proper ZDoom Linux support and I didnt realized till now that Vavoom existed! Great engine, it seems to be even better than ZDoom, and it's GPL, it should be included in the debian repositories! ^^ I've been searching in the wiki and forums but I was not able to find out what's the directory for loading the wads. In Linux, Prboom searches in /usr/share/games/doom/ but this doesnt seem to work for vavoom. I've also tried putting the wads in ~/.vavoom/ and ~/.vavoom/basev/ with no luck, and tried running " vavoom -iwaddir . " but it didn't worked. I'm running the version found in getdeb. Btw, It would be helpful if there was a " --help " command for displaying the command line options. Perhaps I should add a suggestion thread for it in the suggestions forum?

Ok I found the problem now, it seems that the WAD detection was searching for "doom2.wad", however the file was called "DOOM2.WAD", and it seems it's case sensitive. Renaming the wads to lowercase fixed it. the directory ~/.vavoom/ seems to work. btw, is there a way to make opengl be enabled by default or does the "-opengl" param have to be always given? Thanks
