Is there some sort of directory listing for where all of the files for POV-Ray
get installed?

I'm trying to address "Execution of shellout 'mv' prohibited"
by editing the pvengine.ini file - but I don't know where it is.

[I am using DB's QtPOV-Ray 3.8 - but he seems to be having a rough time...]
I didn't see anything on the buckosoft site regarding this particular file.
http://www.buckosoft.com/qtpov/

This wasn't of much help:
http://www.povray.org/documentation/view/3.7.1/600/

I have looked in:
/home/oem/.povray
/usr/share/qtpovray-3.8
/usr/local/etc/povray
/usr/local/share/povray-3.8/ini

Where is it?

unless I'm mistaken, 'povengine.ini' sounds like a MS Windows thing.

  $ find /usr -type f -name povray.conf

On linux pvengine.ini is called povray.ini, but I think jr is right the 
shellout permission's are in povray.conf (which is just another ini file 
in other than name.). This file is location usually installed in
/usr/local/etc/povray/3.8 on the system, but maybe not. There is a 
similar configuration directory in your home $HOME/.povray/3.8 directory 
with similar files. There can be others too... The most restrictive 
setting anywhere wins with permissions. I think otherwise the last 
setting of anything of a particular class wins (flag class wins over ini 
settings IIRC - flexible I guess, but also can be quite tangled).

If you are able to compile your own code, you can configure with 
--enable-debug and it turns on a bunch of unix specific output including 
the search locations being used for the conf/ini files IIRC.

Last I tried it - v3.7 beta I think - I could not get it to work 
properly, but I've not tried it since.
