Default Incorrect path in motion.conf file

I*have*been building a couple of bird boxes with my daughter and decided that we would have a go at setting up motion. *Fantastic application by the way. *I did have a go with zone minder but could not get any of my cameras to connect.

Anyway just to let you know I have*spotted*a path in the /etc/motion/motion.conf file that does not exist or point to the actual thread1-4 files. *I guess this might be a redhat path and not an Ubuntu one. *The same thing exists in Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 so far

thread filesLINE 1 in thread1.conf----> # /usr/local/etc/thread1.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread1.conf)LINE 1 in thread2.conf----> # /usr/local/etc/thread2.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread2.conf)
LINE 1 in thread3.conf----> # /usr/local/etc/thread3.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread3.conf)LINE 1 in thread4.conf----> # /usr/local/etc/thread4.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread4.conf)

Motion fileLINE 633 in /etc/motion/motion.conf----> ; thread /usr/local/etc/thread1.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread1.conf)LINE 634 in /etc/motion/motion.conf----> ; thread /usr/local/etc/thread2.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread1.conf)
LINE 635 in /etc/motion/motion.conf----> ; thread /usr/local/etc/thread3.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread1.conf)LINE 636 in /etc/motion/motion.conf----> ; thread /usr/local/etc/thread4.conf (Should read - /etc/motion/thread1.conf)

Kind Regards & hope this helpsTony WoodTWood@bma.org.uktoekneewood@gmail.com
