Mantain options/settings over new codeblocks installations
« on: July 06, 2007, 09:29:31 am »
Hi,
Is it possible to save/mantain my preferences and settings in codeblocks, when I update to a new svn version on a linux distro?


Thank you.

Yes, by copying the config file.

Under Linux, the config file is normally located under ~/.codeblocks/somename.conf. If you have never worked with profiles, then somename will be default, otherwise it will be your profile's name.
Thus, if you have never done anything exotic, look for ~/.codeblocks/default.conf

When just upgrading Code::Blocks (not the Linux distro), normally you should not need to do anything at all.
