What I omitted to say is that I did create such a directory & file. But 
what your answer appears to indicate is that if I start AfterStep from the 
console with ``startx", afterstep will not first read the contents of my 
$HOME/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep directory, then go to /usr/share/afterstep.
Which would appear to be a defect. Ugh.

However, I suspect that the afterstep executable will read the general 
directory first under certain circumstances, for instance if there is no 
$HOME/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/desktop or $HOME/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/themes.
Is this correct? Do I need to create those subdirectories?
