On Ubuntu, config file found at: ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
On WinXP, config file found at: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\gnupg\gpg.conf
On Win7, config found at: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\gnupg\
If you do not find the file at the specified location, you can just create it. For example, say you navigate to ~/.gnupg/ folder in Ubuntu but there is no gpg.conf file. Just open gedit (or notepad on Windows) and save the empty document as "gpg.conf" (on windows make sure to change the setting to show file extensions). Then add your configurations to this file as needed,.
