Config migrate

Tutorials >
When I install Linux I copy over all my config files from my last install (if not just copy my whole home) - its essential otherwise I'd be wasting time reconfiguring.

I also build up a set of config files for copying over to Linux systems that I install on other people's PC's.
Most contig files will be found in ~/ (user's home) as hidden dot-directories, and also in ~/.config/.

Then in ~/.local/share you have .desktop files for the menu if you made changes there and marble map images if you use that.

Files I migrate/tweak for LXDE installs

I also regularly backup config files somewhere safe, with a script (for LXDE)

lines 3 &4 swap for these if openbox not lxde:
