grip configuration errors=no running

While messing around with my config in grip, I tried to get it to access my dvd drive instead of my cdrw. Well, I typed in the wrong thing, and now grip won't load. When I run it in the terminal, I get this error:

hi5@duckbutter hi5 $ grip
Error: Unable to initialize [/dev/cdrom0]

If someone can tell me where the grip config files are, can I just go in and change /dev/cdrom0 to /dev/cdrom? If not, how can I change this to get grip to load? Thanks for the help.

In your home directory there should be a hidden file:


So if your username is busbarn you would edit /home/busbarn/.grip

sweet that did it. Thanks. I was looking for a .grip folder instead of just a file. That was quick. THanks a lot.
