Currently my .emacs file is found in /home So is my .emacs.d folder and I 
suppose some other files like diary, notes etc will be created in this folder.

I find this really messy and I want all my emacs related files(including the 
.emacs) and folders in a single folder, say /home/EmacsHome

How do I do that in Ubuntu 12.04? In windows I did this by setting an 
environment variable HOME to the path of EmacsHome. But, in Ubuntu, the HOME 
variable will be used for several other programs as well, so I dont want to 
change that.


May I suggest that you leave .emacs.d as it is and simply move .emacs to ~/.emacs.d/init.el
