elementary: embed standard config as fallback

Authored by bu5hm4n on Mar 26 2019, 10:09 AM.



as you can see in T7620, there is quite some critics about how we are
handling configs in elm. This patch enables the compile-time standard
config to be used instead of some weak-wrong-usage hardcoded structure
defines somewhere in elm.

This means, that every update to the default theme will be also in the
next build embedded, without any config files installed at all, the
standard config for desktops will work, and a error will be printed, so
the user does have the possibility to interact with elm as he wishes,
while he sees this error.

fixes T7620

Instead of "found / created" , can we use "found or created" ?? I think that will translate better (ie: read better) in other languages for po files.

That is an error message there is no po translation for this ...

Ahh yes, you are correct. I was confusing fprintf error translations :/ Still, I think it reads better with an "or" anyway...
