The Customization Directory

Epsilon searches for some files in a user-specific customization directory. It also creates files like its initialization file einit.ecm there.

To locate your customization directory, switch to Epsilon's #messages# buffer. Epsilon writes the name of its customization directory to this buffer when it starts up.

Under Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X, the customization directory is ~/.epsilon.

Under Windows, the customization directory is located in the Lugaru\Epsilon subdirectory within the current user's Application Data directory, which varies by version of Windows. Here are some typical locations:

For Windows Vista and later:

\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Lugaru\Epsilon

For Windows 2000/XP:

\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Lugaru\Epsilon

For Windows NT:

\Winnt\Profiles\username\Application Data\Lugaru\Epsilon

For Windows 95/98/ME, when user login is enabled:

\Windows\Profiles\username\Application Data\Lugaru\Epsilon

For Windows 95/98/ME, when user login is disabled:

\Windows\Application Data\Lugaru\Epsilon

You can force Epsilon to use a different customization directory by defining a configuration variable named EPSCUSTDIR. See Configuration Variables for more on configuration variables.
