Taking screenshot or recording crashes the game

See original GitHub issue

My Ubuntu is in Portuguese and when I try to take a screenshot or record a gif, the game crashes trying to create a file: File "/home/jean/Documentos/pyxel-debug/lib/python3.6/site-packages/PIL/", line 1947, in save fp =, "w+b") FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/jean/Desktop/pyxel-180731-095749.gif'

If I create a Desktop folder on my home directory the problem is solved, but I don’t that’s a good solution. An alternative would be creating a subfolder inside the game’s current directory. I would do a pull request, but even that being pretty simple, I think that’s more like a design decision, so it’s up to you ☺️

If you use that, please add a fallback, an external tool like xdg-user-dir is not necessarily installed:

godzil@box4 ~ $ xdg-user-dir
-bash: xdg-user-dir: command not found

Changed, tested and solved on #32. Tested on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
