There are three used paths:

  • The user path: files are loaded from there and files can be saved there
  • The global path, called "path_share": files are loaded from there
  • The current path: usually it's your home folder

User path

If you use the minetest ppa, this path is ~/.minetest/.
Else if you use a self compiled minetest with "run in place", the user path is the global path.


Global path

If you use the minetest ppa, this path is /usr/share/minetest/.
Else if you use a self compiled minetest with "run in place", it is the path where minetest program is at ./bin/minetest.
