Icons, Themes, backgrounds and Fonts Locations in Ubuntu

The reason I wrote this is because I see others looking for this locations all the time.
I will add more in time.
Where Are Fonts Stored
/home/<username>/.fonts (where <username> is your user name).
Note: that the .font folder is a hidden folder.
Where are Icons and Themes store
as well as some user-specific directories for the user-created themes:
~/pixmaps are generally used for menu icons.
~/share/icons are generally used for theme icons.\
Where are Login Themes store
Where are backgrounds store
Where are Grub splash images store
Where do updates go:
Essential system binaries, e.g., init, route, ifup.
Libraries for the binaries in /usr/bin/ and /usr/sbin/.
State information. Persistent data modified by programs as they run, e.g., databases, packaging system metadata, etc.
Lock files. Files keeping track of resources currently in use
Information about the running system since last boot, e.g., currently logged-in users and running daemons
Temporary files to be preserved between reboots
Configuration files for /opt/
Configuration files for SGML
Configuration files for XML
Virtual filesystem documenting kernel and process status as text files, e.g., uptime, network
Source code, e.g., the kernel source code with its header files
local data, specific to the host
