Ubuntu – Where is the .ssh directory

16.10opensshvirtualbox

enter image description here

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 or ssh-keygen. If it is not there, there is nothing to worry about. You can simply create it using mkdir ~/.ssh/.
