I'm trying to find the hidden folder .uncrustify but I don't know where it is. How can I find this folder? I'm trying to do the following but I can't find the hidden folder .uncrustify

Examine the example config files in etc and/or read
documentation/htdocs/configuration.txt.
Copy the existing config file that closely matches your style and put in
~/.uncrustify/.  Modify to your liking.

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.

ls -lR |grep .uncrustify

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

cd /
