My problem is that i just don’t know where to put the config file or the name that it should have
We are trying the same thing, I use Manjaro and the configuration file are located (installing redsocks2 from AUR) in the following directory: /etc/redsocks2.conf
But if you want to use it in Ubuntu I think you will have to compile it from the source (redsocks2).
Once you have installed it (you have to disable shadowsocks) then you will find an example configuration file in /usr/share/doc/redsocks2/redsocks2.conf.example
The novelty of redsocks2 is that it allows you to use it together with openssl, passing the entire connection of the computer through it.
Please, if you have made progress in the configuration, share it. Tomorrow I will try redsocks2, hopefully it works.
