I'm using PlayOnLinux and can't find the working mods folder for Skyrim. Help!

  • Is that the Steam version ?

PlayOnLinux is just a user-friendly GUI for Wine, a free implementation of Windows on Unix. When you install a game, it creates a virtual drive, which default location is $HOME/PlayOnLinux' s virtual drives/<name of the game>.

In that virtual drive, the folder "drive_c" is just like "C:\" on Windows.

Hence, for the steam version, the folder you are looking for is drive_c/Program Files/steam/steamapps/common/The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim/Data.
