I just dumped Windows because it broke on me and replaced it with Ubuntu. I was able to save the character and world files. Where do I put them to be able to use them on my new OS? I know Terraria runs on Ubuntu (am installing it now).

Terraria doesn't run on Ubuntu, so without knowing how you get around that technicality (Wine, most likely?), it's difficult to say. –  lunboks Apr 22 '12 at 16:45
    
@lunboks my Terraria (via Steam) runs without a hitch on Wine. appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=24915 –  Diederik Jun 5 '12 at 17:41

Since the only way to run Terraria on Ubuntu is through WINE as Ben Brocka and lunboks have suggested, I will answer your actual question, assuming that you are using WINE and if you are not, I would suggest that you revise your question to provide more information about your setup.

While I'm sure you knew this if you backed up your files, but to provide background for the answer, as per this question, the default behaviour is for saves to be in My Documents\My Games\Terraria\Players and worlds to be in My Documents\My Games\Terraria\Worlds as stated here.

You will want to put your character and world files in the paths mapped for My Documents\My Games\Terraria\Players and My Documents\My Games\Terraria\Worlds respectively. The default WINE behaviour if I read correctly is for My Documents to map to your home directory so it would be home/(user)/My Games/Terraria/Players and home/(user)/My Games/Terraria/Worlds for your respective username I believe. If you want and this is up to you, you can remap where My Documents maps to in wineconfig, but you will have to adjust where you put the save files accordingly.

Otherwise, if you need to configure something else it's in the .wine folder (/home/(user)/.wine/c_drive/.....) –  Depado Jun 6 '12 at 14:13

You've gotta use WINE, Terraria doesn't run on Ubuntu native. Here's a tutorial on making WINE work with it but I haven't done it myself. I wouldn't expect it to run perfectly but it's a start.
