    Supertux game will not retain settings, etc.

    My most favorite game on Linux is SuperTux2. Usually there are 2 packages: supertux and supertux-data.

    But, everything installed without seeing any data file and it works but, it will not retain anything.

    E.G. I downloaded all of the extra games from within Supertux and put the check mark beside them so they display in Contrib Levels.
    Then If I close the game and re-open it, all of the additional levels are gone and I have to go back and put the check marks in again.

    I also change one setting in keyboard settings for Action to be Right Alt key and if I close it, reopen it that change is gone.
    I've googled until I'm blue and nothing. I found one place that said check the file permissions and they look just like they do on my other 3 Linux installs that work.

    Everything is in ~/.local/share/supertux2/ so, I don't understand why this happens.

    As you know this is not a major catastrophe but, it is a pain that should not be happening.

    Would anyone happen to have a fix for this problem?

    Thank you in advance.
