So my trusty Linux box died after 10 years of faithful service. The memorial will be Friday afternoon.
Anyway, I am moving to a Mac (lesser of two evils - a Win 10 machine was the other option), and I don't think I want to run Linux on it directly - I booted with a live cd of Mint 18 and the video resolution was wonky and no extra drivers to install. So OS X it is.
My issue is that I've got LOTS of settings, etc. for various apps (all cross platform - firefox, thunderbird, geany, filezilla, virtualbox, netbeans, android studio, etc) that I'd like to move over as well. I've pulled the drive my /home directory was on, so I have all of the files.
Some things are trivial - my ssh private keys and config file for connecting to various hosts still go in
But most of the other apps I can't find where to put my data/settings/preferences/profile files. Where do these go on OS X? I opened terminal and looked in my home directory, there is no
~/.filezilla etc directory.
