Configuration options

Ian Channing edited this page Nov 8, 2018 · 27 revisions

There are a few default configuration options you can override by putting them in the config.xml found in:

  • Mac - ~/.config/sparkleshare/
  • Linux (default package manager) - ~/.config/sparkleshare/
  • Linux (flatpak) - ~/.config/org.sparkleshare.SparkleShare/
  • Windows - %APPDATA%\sparkleshare\

These may change or may be removed at any time, so be careful if you plan to make any manual changes.
