[GNC] Copying settings, layout, and colors to another computer

ticotexas
What folder or files can I copy from one Ubuntu to another to avoid having
to set up settings, layout, and colors again? Both have 3.4.

Check the FAQ on the wiki concerning file locations. Each OS is different and there are specific paths for the various configs, reports, et cetera for linux listed there.

Question --- is there some reason why you DON'T want to be moving some
of your user data from one to the other?

Whenever I do something like this I am almost always wanting to copy
over ALL of my data. It can be tricky when changing OS's but here you
are linux to linux << what directory user data is in will be exactly the
same >>

In other words, you are asking specifically about gnucash data. Is that
how you plan to do it? Worrying about each application and what user
config data you need to copy over? You know such data HAS to be in your
user directory tree because multiple users are supported. So as long as
the entire user directory is copied, you should be all set.

I’ve encountered this use case before, though it was always on OS upgrades or transitions when distro hopping.

I have sometimes wanted to migrate my data and my desired configs without carrying over configs from no longer used apps, thus trimming cruft for a *fresh* start.

It might also be a case of two different users on two different machines, but wanting the config to be the same. They may or may not edit the same data file. (not simultaneously of course)


Regards,
Adrien

Yes indeed, that is a time when I also might want to do such "clean up".
BUT (and this might be my background as a professional) I would find
doing things like that SAFER not trying to combine operations.

In other words, I would NOT want to combine "get data over" and "clean
up" << and during "clean up", if done in stages, I would be wanting to
make a backup between each stage and test all apps where data had been
cleaned before moving on.

It is experience having drilled home "mistakes will be made" and so I
want it isolated, if mistake made must have been between two known
"fixed points".

Michael D Novack

PS: Where user data is put (high level directory for each user) is not
different between linux distros.

Thanks everyone. I copied all the referenced files and folders, but the
account colors did not come across. I'm copying from Ubuntu 18.10 to 18.10.

One missing directory that I did not have compared to the FAQ was
HOME/.local/share/gtk-3.0. It doesn't exist. (I did copy
HOME/.config/gtk-3.0 however.)

Re: [GNC] Copying settings, layout, and colors to another computer

Adrien Monteleone-2
You should have copied:

~/your_data_files
~/.local/share/gnucash
~/.local/share/gtk-3.0
~/.config/gnucash
~/.config/gtk-3.0

If that 2nd directory did not exist, then your GTK3 installation probably hadn’t a need to create it yet. Your custom CSS file (if you made one) should reside in the 4th location above. If you were concerned with *cleaning* your installation as I noted in an earlier reply, then I would have left this one out anyway.

As for account colors, I’m not sure on that one. Those should be stored with the book itself. Did you double check all of your preference settings and do they match on both machines? Perhaps one machine has the custom account colors preference turned off. (that should have migrated properly though, odd only one preference is different)

Finally, when replying to a digest message, *please* strip out the parts of the digest that aren’t relevant to your topic. I just had to delete about 6 feet of text before sending this.

Regards,
Adrien

Oops, I'm sorry about how I replied Adrien! You are right that all I needed
to do was check the color boxes under Preferences, Accounts. Thanks
