POSIX - style systems
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:
/homeHOME/'''''<~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 '''$HomeHOME''' [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 toeither: $HomeHOME\.grampsor ~\.gramps
