Mycroft.conf how to create mycroft.conf

I checked Mycroft/Mycroft.conf and the file doesn’t exist, so I need to make one. How do I create a mycroft.conf file? And is it edited using vim?

Hey there @jjohnston7 have a read through this -

the mycroft.conf file can exist in multiple places.

Thanks,. I did read that. But do I just create a new text file for there? I have no mycroft.conf file that I see. I’m on Linux. I did look and see the etc directory where the skills file is, but no mycroft.conf. I thought I read that I may not have one since I’m linked to cloud. I just need to add a json code in there.

I got the file created in vim in the right folder I think lol

Ah! On Linux the file will be in your $HOME directory;

kathyreid@kathyreid-Oryx-Pro:~/.mycroft$ ls -las

To be clear, you don’t need this file unless you have local customizations that can’t be handled elsewhere.
