Default copying files from Pc to PC

W dniu 30.04.2012 15:17, Norman Silverstone pisze:

In a few days time I hope to be setting up a new PC with a fresh install
of Xubuntu 12.04. I would like to be able to copy files from Evolution
that I use as my mail client and bookmarks from Firefox from my current
PC to the new PC. Please help, what is the best way or a not very
knowledgeable computer person to do this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Norman



Install Xmakrs and LastPass for Firefox and synchronize it.
For Evolution, if you use IMAP than you only need new account and
synchronize it. If POP3 than it is a problem :P


Cheers

Copy these files:



Evolution:

/home/username/.evolution or .local/share/evolution

/home/username/.gconf

/home/username/.gnome2_private

/home/username/.camel_certs



Firefox:

/home/username/.mozilla



You may also want:



/home/username/.config

/home/username/.gnome2



For other configuration files.



All these files are hidden, so you will need to do View>Show
Hidden Files (Ctrl+H) to show them. Then copy them onto your home
folder on the new machine, in their original state.



Hope this works



Joshua

Back when I used evolution, after the install, the reboot, etc. I would
copy the dot-directory that evolution resided in, from my backup, and it
always worked. YMMV. I didn't have much luck with the export/import from
backup scheme. That is what I do with thunderbird now, crossing my
fingers that nothing significant had changed in the file structure. Ric
