I installed openssh, but I can't find the
.ssh directory. Could anyone be able to tell me where could I find this directory?
P.S. I installed Ubuntu 16.10 as a virtual machine.
The file is not created by the installation, but upon the first use of
ssh-keygen. If it is not there, there is nothing to worry about. You can simply create it using
Check here for the .ssh directory in here
Its hidden as a result of the dot(.) before the name.
So to find it do
ls -a | grep .ssh in your current location as seen in the image. Also try using nautilus
