Can you please provide a small sample demonstrating this? As I’m quite sure it works for our own uses.

My app did not want to read the some cached content it was supposed to have written in QStandardPaths::CacheLocation.
To understand why, I tried to run it from the terminal, and... everything is working fine.
Since we don't have logs when we run the app directly from Launcher, I updated it to display some logs directly in the UI and I figured out that, when the app is run from the Launcher on the actual device (it's ok on the emulator), QStandardPaths does not work correctly:

QStandardPaths::CacheLocation returns /home/nemo/.cache/mdeclarativecache_pre_initialized_qapplication-XXXXX

XXXXX is a random number, so each time I run my app, it creates a new one.
When run from terminal, QStandardPaths::CacheLocation correctly returns /home/nemo/.cache/

I tried with QStandardPaths::DataLocation but it's the same, I get /home/nemo/.local/share/AppName/mdeclarativecache_pre_initialized_qapplication-XXXXX

So for the moment, I temporarily hardcoded /home/nemo/.cache/
