Another Newbie Question


Today I working with Vuze and I wanted to open a torrent off a site not on my Vuze search with Vuze but I realized I have no clue where progs from the distro center are saved on my harddrive. Any help?

Added note: I run Ubuntu Karmic on my home comp (the one I'm talking about above.)

You mean you can't find where the .torrent file is being saved?

In the downloads folder. Places -> Downloads. That is the default save location for Firefox. It won't be there if you chose to open it instead of save it.

Most Linux GUI software will put it's settings and tempfiles in a hidden directory (starting with a '.' and then the name of the application). That would be the first place to look, whatever it is that you exactly look for.
