The ~ in ~/.uncrustify/ means your home directory. For example, if your Unix username is "lampshade", then the full path is likely to be /home/lampshade/.uncrustify/, but many programs accept the short form too.

If the directory does not exist, create it.

is that really a question? – Matt Ellen May 21 '11 at 23:01

try this

sudo find / -name .uncrustify

ls -lR |grep .uncrustify

but you also might want to 'cd' to your root if you want to scan your whole computer

cd /
