Afair, just add them to ~/.local/share/tomboy where the others are.

Thank you Sam! I looked everywhere with every tool I could think of except where you pointed and that worked. You made my day. How did you know about that location?

zeno (geoffrey-froner) said : #3

Is there some way to know where directories such as .local are located? I used search tools to find some locations for Tomboy but that one didn't show up. Its great that you are there to answer these arcane questions, it's what Linux is about, but I would like to be able to find the next one myself if possible. Additionally, in that directory, .local, are other directories with files named 'catalogues'; when I clicked on some of them, Tomboy would launch! Would you know why that happens? They don't appear to have anything to do with Tomboy.

I hope this is an appropriate question in an appropriate place.

And once again, thanks very much,

Geoffrey

Puh, I guess I've used Tomboy the last time on Hardy (8.04), afterwards I rather use Gnote.
User apps use to have their data in e.g. ~/.local/share, ~/.config, ~/.gnome2 and-or standalone e.g. ~/.tomboy, ~/.gnote, where the dot means hidden, so Nautilus needs to show hidden files or directory, e.g. via Ctrl+H.

> other directories with files named 'catalogues'

I'd need an example path of it.

For locating files I usually use CLI, e.g.
locate

But the database needs to be updated.
sudo updatedb

If this goes to Sam, I'm sending my thanks for your comprehensive and
appreciated help.
This heads me in the direction of solving this and other problems. Knowing
how to find out an answer is the best answer.
