Hi i'm trying to install the CSS add on to GMOD but for the life of me cant find the add on folder, Or the steam folder itself for that matter.

When I try load the folder via GMOD it comes up that the folder is :


But It Doesn't Exist according to my laptop i try to look for it but it cant get past:


and then .local is where it stops and i cant find it. Anywhere. I mean there are other .local files in different location but they all have different things in.

So i was just wondering what i was doing wrong and why i cant find the add on folder for garrys mod, i'm tired of seeing the fricking pink and black checkers on my screen.!


Any directory that starts with a . is a hidden directory.

From a file manager you want to select show hidden (either right click, or its in the top menu under view)

For example, if you open a terminal it opens up in your home directory.

If you type


This will show you what you normally would see on a file manager, but if you

 ls -a

You will see all the hidden dot files.
