    Unhappy Where can I find a dictionary I created in my own computer?

    My question is not about the Spanish language. My question is about the location of where is the following:

    I created it because the Spanish dictionary I use is very incomplete, so I created an alternated one. and I know where to find it in the document: Options = language Settings = Writing Aids = User-defined dictionaries.
    Great.


    But,
    what if I want to copy and paste that book or folder (in a CD, etc) because my computer get crashed sometimes and once again I have to create my alternate dictionary and that take me hours to add one by one.

    so, the only question I have is:

    where I can find it specifically? In Fyle System? Home? Where exactly? The name of the file is Luis [Espanol] [All]

    Note: in the past I have searched for it (with over 300 words I added) but the file was too small (kb), why?

    Thank in advance.

    and le's suppose I can backup it.... then, how or where I can paste it again (in case the computer is reformatted again) so it can work again as before?

    I have a spell check dictionary in LibreOffice for family names etc that are correct but not in any other dictionary.
    The file is standard.dic and is located here: /home/USER/.config/libreoffice/4/user/wordbook

    You can right click on the wordbook folder and sync with Ubuntu One. I just tried it - works fine.

    Hello Fyfe54
    Thank you for the reply. I was not here to check it in time.

    Since I installed the new Ubuntu (12.04) now I can not find the /home/USER/.config/libreoffice/4/user/wordbook to check that.
    I will keep trying.

    No, Fyfe54,
    I did the search but I could not find the file I created.
    You can see the picture.

    Where is my file-dictionary?

    your personal customizations are always somewhere in your home dir, /usr is for standard stuff that comes with installation.

    run find ~ -iname '*.dic'

    Okay, Vaphell, I got it the difference between /usr and what I created.

    I did the terminal and I got a list of dictionaries, and the one I want.
    /home/Pito/.config/libreoffice/3/user/wordbook/Pito [Español].dic

    But, I still can not find it manually looking for .config, or libreoffice, or wordbook.

    What I am doing wrong??

    it is a hidden file or something??

    Vaphell!
    You are a hero!

    I found it by making visible the hidden files
    It was invisible in my Home folder!

    I followed your instructions step by step and I found it FINALLY!

    You are my hero! jejeje

    Thank you.

    So, this thread was solved thanks to Valphell and the original help of fyfe54.
