      Description

      There is endless user confusion surrounding GUACAMOLE_HOME. Many users see "/etc/guacamole" used in tutorials and elsewhere, and assume that Guacamole itself looks in this path by default. When "/etc/guacamole" is ultimately ignored, the struggle to manually set GUACAMOLE_HOME ensues, even though there are standard paths which would work just as easily.

      It's clear that:

      1. The wording in the manual should somehow be clarified such that it's obvious where the default search paths are, and that GUACAMOLE_HOME does not need to be manually set.
      2. The search paths for GUACAMOLE_HOME should be expanded to include "/etc/guacamole" for convenience.
