Syncing ZSNES game saves across ubuntu systems

I was hoping to sync my ZSNES game saves across all my pc's. It turns out it take very little work.

First I made a folder in dropbox for my game saves and made a copy of my current saves out there.

Next I removed the contents of the zsnes folder located at

(Make sure you've saved the files from .zsnes folder below first
cd ~/.zsnes
rm * (this gets rid of the files)
cd ..
rmdir .zsnes

Finally I setup a simlink from my dropbox to the folder so I always had my game saves synced.

cd /home/
ln -s ~/Dropbox/zsnes .zsnes

Substitute the path with your path and bam you're done!

Good luck
