    Default Ubuntu Linux not able to see .kettle properties file

    Hi

    We are using Ubuntu Linux and we downloaded the pdi software version as pdi-ce-6.1.0.1-196. we are not able to find out kettle properties file.

    We are able to launch the kettle application but not able see any kettle. properties file. Generally when we launch the kettle application automatically kettle. properties file will be created but it is not happening.

    we tried to search on /opt and home directory but no luck.

    We placed the kettle software in /opt. Is this correct place to kept pdi-ce-6.1.0.1-196 or some where else we need place?

    Please help on this.

    thanks,
    Santhi

    The kettle.properties is in the /home/user/.kettle directory or the user running kettle, regardless of the path to the kettle software.

    The .kettle directory is in the KETTLE_HOME system or shell variable. When that variable not set it is in the /kome/user/.kettle of the user running pdi. You can also change the spoon.sh file to point -DKETTLE_HOME to another directory

    Thank you, @johanjammink, I forgot that you can set it up specifically.
