The initial launch of a fresh installation of tipp10 fails with the following error message:

"Cannot find the database tipp10v2.templateThe file could not be imported.
Please check whether it is a readable text file.

(Error number: 203)

Affected directory:

The program will be aborted."

Presumably, it tries to create said database file on first launch but fails due to the lack of permissions in /usr/bin. It is not possible to change the location of the database file due to the program immediately exiting after throwing the error message. Each successive attempt to launch the program fails with the same error.

Additional info:
* package version: 3.0.0-1
* possibly related to this commit:

Steps to reproduce:

1. Do a clean installation of tipp10
2. Run tipp10 for the first time
This task depends upon

Hi, i got the same error after a clean install.

I fix the error with the following commands:
mkdir $HOME/TIPP10
cp /usr/share/tipp10/tipp10v2.template $HOME/TIPP10/tipp10v2.db
