hi, my wife broke her nexus 5 (cracked screen) so I bought her a new one. I would like to take the backup from the old (which has CyanogenMod) and restore to the new.

I think that cannot be done..
If the old phone is rooted, try taking titanium backup of the apps required and try restoring them in the new one...

If the new phone which you bough is also a nexus 5 then yeah. You can restore the old phone's backup. Just make sure you don't restore the EFS as it's unique to each phone.

yeah both fones are nexus 5's. I can't figure what file/s to drag and drop to my pc ? I think the terminology is that I used clock work mod to create a nandroid backup.

Don't copy individual files. Copy the whole folder which is present inside /clockworkmod/ and transfer it to the new Nexus 5's /clockworkmod/.

Once it's done, you can restore the backup on the new nexus 5.

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DON'T RESTORE EFS!

I an using fedora. after a few hours of searching I came across this directory on my tablet.
Code:
u0_a42@grouper:/storage/emulated/legacy/0/clockworkmod/backup/2014-03-17.18.31.06 $ ll
-rwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw  8388608 2014-03-17 14:31 boot.img
-rwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw      378 2014-03-17 14:33 cache.ext4.dup
-rwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw   328137 2014-03-17 14:33 data.ext4.dup
-rwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw      237 2014-03-17 14:33 nandroid.md5
-rwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw 12582912 2014-03-17 14:31 recovery.img
-rwxrwxr-x root     sdcard_rw   134239 2014-03-17 14:32 system.ext4.dup

EFS is a partition, not a file.
