Hello guys,

I'm trying to configure the Autoexec section of Dosbox. I downloaded DOSBOX for Windows and I added these lines :

[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.
# You can put your MOUNT lines here.

MOUNT C C:\DOSGAMES\
C:

I saved and ran Dosbox.exe, it worked !

I'm doing the same thing for `Dosbox in Fedora 30`, configuring the file `dosbox-0.74.conf` located in `/usr/share/dosbox/translations/fr`.

But when I run it, it doesn't work.
Here is a screenshot :

It worked for Windows...

I tried to put these lines on each `dosbox-0.74.conf` located in each translation folder, but still not working.
I think that the application doesn't run this configuration file, it seems to be another file, but which one?
I've made a search of `dosbox` and these were the only files existing.

It's a hidden folder in your HOME folder (~ means your HOME folder and the dot before the name means it is hidden)

Great! And good that you knew how to make it appear, as I'm not on Linux and wasn't able to tell you that 😉
