I am going through the tutorials now https://developers.eos.io/eosio-nodeos/docs/learn-about-wallets-keys-and-accounts-with-cleos

It says that there is a folder

The file for this wallet is named default.wallet. By default, keosd stores wallets in the ~/eosio-wallet folder

However, it is not in the home directory for the Elementary OS.

Where is this eosio-wallet folder?

  • I am using Elementary OS, which is a linux based on ubuntu Jun 18 '18 at 11:53
  • I think I have found my wallets here /tmp/eosio/data/ Jun 18 '18 at 11:56

In general, you can search for files in linux by using the find command:

find / -name eosio-wallet

Please let us know the result of this search


In your home directory. "~" indicates the user's home directory
