If you want to transfer a wallet into a bitcoin client that's sitting in an Ubuntu install, where do you put it? I don't have much experience with Ubuntu, but all the bitcoin pieces don't seem to be sitting in one directory, so I just wouldn't know where to put the wallet. Is the wallet file the only file I need to transfer to get the bitcoin to recognise the bitcoins and to function perfectly?

It goes in the .bitcoin directory in your home directory.  Dirs that start with a '.' are hidden.  You can see them with 'ls -a'.

Yes, you just need the wallet.dat.  The rest will be automatically downloaded.

plz help, thanks: Well, I'll be damned, but I have a bitcoin client in windows. I copied the wallet.dat, put it into linux, put it into the ubuntu installation with a brand new bitcoin client downloaded from ubuntu software center, replacing the default wallet.dat and now I get these error messages:

exception nst8ios_base7failureECDataStream::read() : end of data bitcoin in AppInit()

EXCEPTION NSt8ios_base7failureECDataStream::read() : end of data bitcoin in CMyApp::OnUnhandledException()

Does the same wallet.dat still load in Windows?

what version is you "brand new bitcoin client" ubuntu repos are usually a few versions behind, last 2 versions have security updates, check bitcoin.org make sure you are up to date Smiley
