Hello Kiran,

I have looked into the patch. Few problems.

  • Patch won't get applied cleanly. Getting error "error: engine-util.c: No such file or directory". Have you generated the patch after pulling all latest changes?

  • You seems to be logging into "/var/log/varnam". This won't work as /var/log don't have write permissions for non-root programs. You need to write to `$HOME/.local/share/varnam/logs`. Your code should also take XDG specification into account. See - http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/basedir-spec/. Mostly XDG_DATA_HOME environment varible. If it is set, use that as your base directory. Or else use $HOME/.local/share

  • Don't attach the patch here. Submit a pull request on Gitorious and leave a comment here.

Currently log files are written to config directory. This is wrong and it should go to the standard defined logs directory.
