I am trying to increase the maximum amount of memory available to Gephi on Ubuntu. The official Gephi help says this is how to do it:

On Linux, go into your application directory and then into the etc folder. 
Edit the file with a text editor.

The proble is that I have no idea where "the application directory" for Gephi is.

I have installed Gephi as follows:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:rockclimb/gephi-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gephi

and which gephi produces:


But I cannot for the life of me find gephi.conf. Any ideas?

Figured it out: find / -name 'gephi.conf' -print 2> /dev/null. It was in /usr/share/gephi/etc/. –  Richard Nov 19 '12 at 16:06
It's great that you've figured this out. You should post you solution as an answer below and then accept it. This will cause this question to fall out of our review queue. –  Chris Wilson Dec 1 '12 at 21:13
