OK, I now have a new version qtrainer-1.2 at the aforementioned 
repository. Or (if you prefer direct access) download at


This version fixes the following issues:

0. is lintian clean

1. uses QSettings (i.e. file ~/.config/qtrainer/qtrainer.conf on Linux) 
to store the name and location of the sqlite3 database file and where to 
store gmn-files when spawning garmin_save_runs from inside the application.

2. if the config file doesn't exist it will be created with the 
following defaults:



3. if the database file doesn't exist, an empty version of it will be 
created by the application. Package qtrainer still recommends sqlite3 
but can run without it. All that qtrainer depends on is the sqlite 
support in Qt. However, sqlite3 itself is very useful to interactively 
edit your tracks, e.g. when you forgot to stop your watch after your run.

For further details on how to use the program, look at the README file 
which is part of the package.
