I've just installed Audacity on SLED 11, from the Education repository if it matters. I'm trying to set some defaults, but need to know where the audacity configuration files live.

From the Audacity Manual

Audacity Preferences are stored in a configuration file called audacity.cfg. It is a text file and can be edited with any text editor. The file is stored at:

  • Windows: Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Audacity\audacity.cfg
  • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/audacity.cfg
  • Linux: ~/.audacity-data/audacity.cfg
