Ubuntu – How to export a profile in Toxic


I recently installed the Tox client Toxic and created an encrypted profile with it, however I now want to export my profile in order to import it into another Tox client, but after going through the /help section, I am not sure how to do this. It said for more information not covered in its built-in help section to go to its manpage, however after typing:

man toxic

This is the output:

No manual entry for toxic
See 'man 7 undocumented' for help when manual pages are not available.

So as I can't seem to find the manpage, nor any documentation documenting how to export a Toxic profile I am lost… So how do I export it? It says here that there is a way.

I am running the latest version of Toxic and Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 with GNOME 3.18.

According to tox wiki page, the profiles are stored in ~/.config/tox/ , specifically the file is profile_toxic.tox. Exporting simply is a matter of copying that file and saving it. To import profile on another machine, simply copy over that file into the ~/.config/tox directory, or use toxic -f /path/to/saved/profile_toxic.tox
