This appendix provides the reference to the '''Gramps user directory''' available on various operating systems.
{{man note|Note|The location of your '''Gramps user directory''' depends on the operating system you are using and how you have set up your computer. <br />In the table below '''''<code><~username></code> ''''' should be replaced by the name you use to log in to your computer.}}
__TOC__
The default user directory location for Gramps in a [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Posix POSIX]-style [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard environment] is:
/home/'''''<~username>'''''/.gramps
This is true for [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Bsd BSD], [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux Linux], [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_(operating_system) Solaris], [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix Unix] and [https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X Mac OS-X] when using [[Build_from_source#Mac_OS_X|Mac OS X Build from source]].
 
Alternately, you can leverage the '''$Home''' [http://www.linfo.org/home_directory.html Home directory equivalent] to avoid dealing the complications of active user names. Although Gramps will not recognize directory equivalents for paths internally, you can use them within Linux to find Gramps user files. The '''Gramps user directory''' path above is simplified to:
$Home\.gramps
=== Mac OS X ===
The default location for the [[Mac OS X:Application package]] is
/Users/'''''<~username>'''''/Library/Application Support/gramps
== MS Windows ==
