    I have some files that are synced between all of my devices using iCloud. Mostly they are text files created by “Not EMACS” or other similar programs. I can log into iCloud.com with Ubuntu 16.04 and I can see files that I have uploaded using the iCloud App but none of the ones with other apps. Wher rare they? I can find them on my MacBook under the directory:
    /Users//Library/Mobile Documents/iCloud~NotEmacs/
    but nowhere else. I don’t like having to use my Mac as an intermediate data handler for Linux (my preferred is) but so far all I can do is copy them from that directory on the Mac to Dropbox, which syncs on Linux. What’s the deal, where are my files hiding?
