gsettings-desktop-schemas package. Such that my computers can pull down updates to ...

I downloaded Discord from discord.com (chose a

I can understand keeping configuration files in
/home, since these are custom files that have been created/edited by the user when running the corresponding program.
In contrast however, configuration files in

A while ago I messed up my computer trying to fix something else (it's already figured out) and deleted some core files, which makes my computer unable to update and install via apt-get. I know that I was making an ignorant mistake with that action, I do not need reminding.
