Umm, I've only been using Ubuntu for a week, or Linux for that matter, and I can't find the directory to which BOINC was installed.
I used Synaptic to get BOINC by adding these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list :
# BOINC packages for Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"
deb http://pkg-boinc.alioth.debian.org/ubuntu breezy universe
deb-src http://pkg-boinc.alioth.debian.org/ubuntu breezy universe
And then I clicked reload, so boinc-client, boinc-dev and boinc-manager appeared in the 'New in repository' list, and I installed each one of them.
Now I've been trying to use this calibrated client and optimised application, but I can't find the BOINC directory, or the BOINC/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu directory.
Sorry for being so dumb.
Thanks

I did not know, where debian will install it. But you can do a find : "find / -name boinc_client" or "find / -name run_client" to find, where the package has installed the binaries.

That didn't work. This is what I get:

root@Tails:/home/moi# cd /
root@Tails:/# find / -name boinc_client
/usr/bin/boinc_client
find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /proc: this may be a bug in your filesystem driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlier results may have failed to include directories that should have been searched.
find: /proc/8342/task: No such file or directory
find: /proc/8342/fd: No such file or directory
find: /proc/8508/task: No such file or directory
find: /proc/8508/fd: No such file or directory
find: /proc/9193/task: No such file or directory
find: /proc/9193/fd: No such file or directory
root@Tails:/#

Now what? Should I reinstall BOINC? Using the terminal this time?
P.S. Why are my work units taking so long? My Linux host

The WU runntimes should IMHO be OK for this CPU.
Hm, it looks like you have installed and running correctly. With a "find / -name setiathome-4\\*" or "find / -name projects" you should find now the working directory.

I solved the problem by removing the Synaptic install of BOINC and then reinstalling BOINC manually into /usr/BOINC, and installed the optimised application and calibrating client.
But now, though the application works, the client doesn't calibrate my GFlops and CPU time like it does in Windows. How do I know if I'm still using the standard BOINC client or the calibrating one?
Thanks again,

Your question is answered in the file /usr/share/doc/boinc-client/README.Debian. The BOINC directory that the boinc-client package uses is /var/lib/boinc-client.
