I don't get my description if I restore my wallet with a seed (of course). Where is the folder located to restore the wallet? Electrums docs says "Go -> Location and type ~/.electrum". It's probably obvious but I dont know where to type that in Ubuntu...

I am in Windows now and I am about go sleeping but it's super easy. Open the Computer tab and go to the long box and copy paste ~/.electrum there.

In the picture below I find in google just to give you an example where you should type it.

It's an hidden folder, with ubuntu you open the file manager, go to your home folder and press CTRL+H to show hidden directories and files.

If you are restoring the wallet from the seed words, I don't think you should need to mess with the Electrum files in this folder. You can just create a new wallet and restore from seed and it should do the rest. You would only need to do this to restore contacts and labels if these are something you need.

you don't need to be too hard on yourself, the option is already provided within electrum.
from the toolbar click on   Wallet > Labels > export    give the file a name and click save.

that will save all your labels (names you gave to your addresses) and Descriptions (names you gave to your transactions) in a JSON format.
an example of the file content:
{
    "1BYjkgEqCwWcAii2GnGqsd1MRmqiku4MLL": "pooya87",
    "c442d2a973828ac3f4d14b42cf7d276d8c7d2669993c323615244df2deba29c9": "test descript"
}

you can then import this in your other wallet you restore with seed.

Thanks for answers!
First of all I could't find the 'location bar'. However, I did notice it when I had it in full screen. Because I hoovered the 'top bar' so that 'Go' appeard. And good suggestion to export and import the description.
