On Linux, I used a symbolic link (think of it as a shortcut file on Windows, but more transparent to the applications).airhead wrote: ↑15 Feb 2017 11:26Hi,
I'm playing ETS2 on Kubuntu 16.04 and I know the default mod folder location in linux is ~/.local/share/Euro Truck Simulator 2/mod.
Now, my question is, how can I use the windows mod folder from linux? Will those instructions work from linux too (I mean changing from Steam options) or I must do something else?
Open a terminal.
Code: Select all
# Go to the ets2 directory cd '~/.local/share/Euro Truck Simulator 2' # Original file listing ls -lh # You can see the mod directory # ... # drwxr-xr-x 2 thomas thomas 4.0K jun 21 21:50 mod # ... # Move the mod directory to the large disk, or in airheads case, move it away to a safe place mv mod /media/large-disk/ets2_mod # Create a symbolic link to the mod directory to use (Create link pointing to "ets2_mod", call the link "mod") ln -s /media/large-disk/ets2_mod mod # New file listing ls -lh # You can see the symbolic link ("symlink") to the new location. The line starts with an "l" for link and at the end you can see where it points to # ... # lrwxrwxrwx 1 thomas thomas 48 jul 8 19:14 mod -> /media/large-disk/ets2_mod # ... # Try the link. If I don't add the "/", I will just see the link, not the contents of the directory it points to ls -lh mod/
