in linux os in the desktop & in the terminal
What replaces the folders of (AppData, Roaming) that found in windows os?

Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec)

There's no directly comparable directory .. but your home folder contains hidden directories (ie. directories whos names begin with a .)

The closest comparable directory to appdata would probably be the .config directory in your home folder .. but there ARE things that are saved outside .config, such as the hidden .mozilla directory which contains the firefox settings, etc.

If this is a "what do I backup to keep all my application settings ?" you should really backup the WHOLE of your home directory.

I don't know what you mean

If you mean "is the Linux /user directory comparable with the Windows Users directory ?" .. no, not really.

there's very little that's directly comparable between the Linux and Windows directory structure.

Enter your home folder, then hit Ctrl+H

Or there's an option in the pcmanfm file manager
View > Show Hidden Files
(I think)
