OK thanks ... got a good build, however when when I did uberpov 
--version a slight problem:

ash@linux-c2bm:~/ScratchPad/git/uberpov $ uberpov --version
uberpov: cannot open the system configuration file 
/usr/local/etc/uberpov/1.37/uberpov .conf: No such file or directory
uberpov: cannot open the user configuration file 
/home/ash/.uberpov/1.37/uberpov.conf: No such file or directory
uberpov: I/O restrictions are disabled
UberPOV 3.7.0.unofficial

Notice the space in uberpov.pov above ... the file lives properly in the 
root of the build directory. It did /not/ get copied into 
/usr/local/etc/uberpov/1.37 (uberpov.ini /did/). ~users/.uberpov on down 
did /not/ get created ... copied uberpov.conf to the two places it 
needed to be and uberpov --version now at least id's proper because it 
found the users conf file ... guess there's an error in the source 
somewher that is causing it to look for "uberpovray. conf"

uberpov --version
uberpov: cannot open the system configuration file 
/usr/local/etc/uberpov/1.37/uberpov .conf: No such file or directory
UberPOV 3.7.0.unofficial

shouldn't that be 1.3.7 ... VERSION file in root of build dir has:

1.37.0.0-alpha

so that means ~uberpov/unix/VERSION is correct ... could it be line 88 
in ~uberpov/source/backend/povray.h ????

No, that line is fine. In some places the program does tell the user 
what official version of POV-Ray it is based on.

Found the culprits though; Git master should be ok now.

Thanks for finding those buggers, I'd probably never have seen them myself.

This is GREAT!

I am now playing around with the sample scene files before trying out on 
my own scenes, but it looks fantastic.

Keep up the good work!

/home/ash/.uberpov/1.37/uberpov.conf: No such file or directory
UberPOV 1.37.0.0-alpha

Of course. I wouldn't want /you/ sniffing around in there ;-)

Seriously, I have no idea how I'd even be able to change the permissions.

Did you make install?

If not, then this is to be expected.

Uh... forget that statement. If you hadn't done make install, there 
would be nothing in /usr/local/etc..., would there.

But it also means you installed as root; could there possibly be an 
.uberpov directory now in the root's home directory?

What does POV-Ray proper do in that situation, anyway?

As a side note, this message is just a warning; UberPOV should be able 
to run just fine without a ~/.uberpov/1.37/uberpov.conf, except that it 
prints this message. Same as POV-Ray does when it misses its 
~/.povray/3.7/povray.conf file.

You might want to check though whether UberPOV accidently wrote an 
uberpov.conf somewhere into ~/.povray, or even replaced POV-Ray's .conf 
file. That would be seriously bad.
