I was moving my son’s save game process for supertux to a different computer and noticed:


was missing. So I went to the chat for supertux and tried to find out where they should be. The people online at the time didn’t know. My googlefoo left me without a location.

Next I looked up how to find files used by a process in linux. I found pfiles, but that didn’t seem to be on Ubuntu by default, I did some more searching and found what I wanted:

lsof -a -p <pid>

You can get the pid from

ps -A | grep tux
