The location of your GRAMPS user directory depends on the operating system you are using and how you have set up your computer. In the table below <~username> should be replaced by the name you use to log in to your computer.

The default location for an installation of GRAMPS in a POSIX-style environment is:

/home/<~username>/.gramps

This is true for BSD, Linux, Solaris, Unix and OS-X when using Mac OS X Build from source.

On Macs, filenames starting with "." do not show up in Finder. To make access to the Gramps user directory easy, open a terminal window with Finder-Applications-Utilities-Terminal and type there

ln -s .gramps gramps_user_directory

which will allow Finder to show the contents. Or simply click on Go -> 'Go to Folder...' in the Finder, and type

~/.gramps

in the Go to Folder dialog box.

The default location for an installation on a Windows system is

C:\Documents and Settings\<~username>\Application Data\gramps

On Windows7, it is

C:\Users\<~username>\AppData\Roaming\gramps\gramps34

The default location for the Mac OS X:Application package is

/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/gramps
