Description

Help viewer (called from Python console) is a different process/executable called from QGIS.

The settings are being read and write from a wrong path.

The path now is: (on Ubuntu)

/home/jgr/.local/share/qgis_help/profiles/default/QGIS/QGIS3.ini

The path should be:

/home/jgr/.local/share/QGIS/QGIS3/profiles/default/QGIS/QGIS3.ini

To reproduce this bug, just launch Python console, open the Help dialog, move it and close it. The QGIS3.ini file is created in the wrong folder.

A new PR is under way to fix this.
