From Windows Portable Version to GNU\Linux

I've used a Windows Portable Version for years on a network disk, but now I can't to continue to use it in this way. I've get errors when I add new books.

I'm trying to switch from the Windows Portable Version to a GNU\Linux version. I use it in a ssh remote connection with X11 forwarding. I can open my libraries without problems and I can add new books.
Is there a way to transfer all my settings and plug-in from the Windows Version to GNU\Linux? Are they compatible?

Copy the config folder over, then you will need to adjust the path(s) to the libraries using Create/Switch:use existing (Delete, just removes the linkage, so it is safe)
You may also need to adjust the paths to Save to Folder and save to disk (if they were used)

From the calibre manual:

How do I move my calibre data from one computer to another?

I use this to move from my Linux PC to my windows tablet.
