Preference location on Debian

Post by Fabian » July 14th, 2018, 1:46 pm

I installed Golly from the Debian package manager and wanted to tweak my hotkey settings. Since the built in hotkey editor is pretty bad (sorted by keys instead of actions), I can't see a list of all hotkeys there. On Windows, I was just able to find and edit my "GollyPrefs" file, but I can't find it on Debian.
Where is it saved?

Without having a Linux machine at the moment, I'd expect it to be ~/.golly/GollyPrefs .
