Where, in Linux, can I find ALL the files associated with a specific project? So far I have identified the following:

These are folders that contain easily identified files:
var/lib/boinc-client/projects/......
var/lib/boinc-client/notices/......
var/lib/boinc-client/slots/......

The following are start of filenames associated with a project:
var/lib/boinc-client/account......
var/lib/boinc-client/job_log......
var/lib/boinc-client/master......
var/lib/boinc-client/sched......
var/lib/boinc-client/statistics......

Thanks,
Mike

My home directory has a hidden dir ".BOINC" with links etc. to "var/lib/boinc-client".

Greetings, Dirk

Interesting. That directory on my machine doesn't contain any links to /var/lib/boinc-client. It only has two files:

stderrgui.txt
stdoutgui.txt

Also, Asteroids isn't the only project active - at least when it is normally running. Also run Rosetta, Einstein and World Community Grid.

None seem to have anything in the two files pointing elsewhere.

Should also mention that I am running Linux Mint Mate 20.1
