I recently got a small game from Software Center called Dungeon Crawl and I can't figure out how to view my past games. It says the morgue file (of game'overs) is in the /home/owner/.crawl/morgue/ directory, but I can't find it at all. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04. How can I find this directory?

In those instructions, owner (or <owner>) is intended to be replaced by your username. When you first open the file browser, you'll be in your home folder (/home/owner). So you just have to navigate into the .crawl folder.

Files and folders that start with a . are hidden by default. To show them in Nautilus (the file browser), press Ctrl+H or do View > Show Hidden Files. Then you can navigate into the .crawl folder inside your home directory, where (assuming the documentation you read is correct) there should be a morgue folder that contains your past games.

This is correct, the text files can be a bit confusing to read thought, there will be 3 for each character, "lst" which is the things that were left on the dungeon floor, "txt" = character stats, skills and inventory, and "map" = a text based map – TrailRider Jun 16 '12 at 3:15
