How to move settings from Windows to Linux?


(Sebastian Gromo) #1

I am usually playing on my Windows computer but sometimes I am able to run game from Linux (Ubuntu 17.10).
Is there any option to move settings like UI placement from Windows to Linux system?
I found that files are stored in AppData directory on Windows but where those files are stored on Linux?

They are in a wineprefix located at ~/.eve/wineenv. The full path is

~/.eve/wineenv/drive_c/users/username/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP

I use a one-line script, which contains the paths so I don’t have to remember them every time:

cp -ruv "/windows/Users/XXX/AppData/Local/CCP/EVE/c_program_files_(x86)_eve_sharedcache_tq_tranquility/settings_Default/" "/home/YYY/.eve/drive_c/users/YYY/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE/c_program_files_(x86)_eve_sharedcache_tq_tranquility/"

(All in one line.)

You’ll have to set XXX, YYY and the entire paths to whatever you use. The options “-ruv” to cp tell it to copy the entire contents over, but only to update the files that have actually changed.
