I have Adium installed on my Mac (10.6.8) but cannot find the chat transcripts stored anywhere. I am able to view them in Adium, but, I do not have a folder

/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0

which is the only place online I can find information about these logs (I do not have this folder on my machine).

I am unsure what to search for either (none of the searches I have tried have found anything, but I have not been able to find them either) but really would like to find this file - I know it exists somewhere since Adium is logging.

It should be ~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0, notice the ~ which denotes your home directory (/Users/your_username/), so the whole path should be /Users/your_username/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0.

Thanks, as a frequent linux user this makes me feel like an idiot for not noticing the ~. – enderland Nov 11 '12 at 4:14
Please keep in mind that if you are trying to access this path in your terminal, you should type: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Adium\ 2.0/ – Edenshaw Nov 25 '15 at 15:20
