Hi COMPAQ.

The user folder does not exist by default, you'l need to create it manually ;)

But you are in the correct location!

Prewarning with Linux you'll need to take a look at lst files as an awful lot of addons haven't used case sensitive naming

You want the user folder to be at the same level as the aircraft, scenery, ground, etc folders.

Here is what my setup looks like. You do not have to have the same folders, as I have added some extras, but this should give you an idea about what this folder should have inside it and where the user folder needs to be placed.
