I am trying to find the Audacity Folder so I can add the manual to it so I don't have to use online resources for help. I can't find where Ubuntu 12.04 stores the Applications Folder (as in a Mac)

Ubuntu doesn't store all of a programs stuff in one folder like Windows and Mac. See: – Seth Feb 19 '13 at 16:39

If you downloaded the Audacity manual from their official download site, these commands will work:

cd to the Downloads folder:

cd Downloads  

Extract the manual:


Then move the help folder into /usr/share/audacity:

sudo mv help /usr/share/audacity  

There you go. Audacity now has a local copy of the manual.
