» smplayer 0.6.5.1: configuration migration

If you are using the excellent video player frontend smplayer that is available for openSUSE in the Packman repository and plan to upgrade to the latest 0.6.5.1 release, be aware that the author changed the smplayer configuration directory location, going from ~/.smplayer to the XDG standard compliant ~/.config/smplayer The application does not implement any automatic migration, so you need to do that yourself, as follows (you can simply copy/paste those two lines into a shell where you are logged in with your regular user account, not root):
mkdir -p ~/.config
mv ~/.smplayer ~/.config/smplayer
