I am not able to find geth.ipc

geth attach ipc:/home/user/privatechain/data/geth.ipc console
Fatal: Unable to attach to remote geth: dial unix /home/edureka/privatechain/data/geth.ipc: connect: no such file or directory

I checked that directory and geth.ipc is not there. How to find geth.ipc?

If you have initialized the genesis block correctly then you should have the file in ./data directory. Anyways you can find it like this:

locate geth.ipc

It will show the location and then use that location

geth attach ipc:/<path to file>/geth.ipc console
