Re: MCHOME environment variable

I have put a copy of mc on a linux machine where I don't have rights to place files in the /usr/lib directory. According to the man page, I can accommodate this situation by setting the MCHOME environment variable to the directory in which the /usr/lib/mc files appear. Is MCHOME a substitute for /usr, for /usr/lib, or for /usr/lib/mc. Actually, I believe I've tried them all.

It seems you are using mc 4.5.55 or older with obsolete man page. In this case you can use MC_LIBDIR environment variable which substitutes /usr/lib/mc in your case.

After mc-4.6-pre1 you can use MC_DATADIR variable for this goal.
