Nope. really can't find it. I've set the 'view' to 'show hidden files' but my home directory doesn't seem to contain a '.oolite' folder. Now I'm totally confused!

Adding an 'AddOns' folder in Ubuntu Karmic

Hi All, I don't seem to have an AddOns folder so cannot install any OXPs. As I understand it this should be at /usr/lib/GNUstep/System/Applications/AddOns but the only folder in /usr/lib/GNUstep/System/Applications is Oolite.app I think AddOns should go in the 'Applications' folder with this but it'...

Hey Guys, give me a break! I have a Windows machine as well...I'm not some Linux purist, although I do use the Linux box most as it is just better for what I do, mostly.

I keep getting attacked by "clean" ships
