I would like to make a clean install in my computer, but I play a lot of with Kblocks (KDE Tetris game on GNOME) and If it possible I would like to copy the highscore to the new (Maverick) system too.

The high score is stored in the configuration file (which is a questionable design choice if you ask me, but whatever...) at ~/.kde/share/config/kblocksrc.

Yeah, questionable indeed. Games usually store high scores inside /var/games, IIRC (or was it /usr/games?). – badp Oct 10 '10 at 14:57
@badp: Right, exactly. – sepp2k Oct 10 '10 at 14:57
No file in /var/games. In usr/games there is the startup file only – Robert Oct 10 '10 at 15:02
@Robert, have you read the answer proper? – badp Oct 10 '10 at 15:05
Yay! You are super! :) – Robert Oct 10 '10 at 15:08
