Not with the code you originally posted.  You can't assume anything
about the contents of registry entries that you didn't create.  There
might be some Linux-specific code that you can use, but I don't know
what it is.

The easiest thing to do is continue using
Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData, but use Path.Combine to
create the full paths:

	string root = Environment.GetFolderPath (
	string myDocsPath = Path.Combine (root, 
		Path.Combine ("Macaque", "MacaqueDB.db"));
	string imagesDir = Path.Combine (root,
		Path.Combine ("Macaque", "Images"));
	if (!Directory.Exists (imagesDir))
		Directory.CreateDirectory (imagesDir);

Under Linux, SpecialFolder.ApplicationData maps to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME,
which in turn defaults to ~/.config.

There was a set of Evolution# packages that you might look into...
