First of all I'm working with ePiX

For those who have never heard about, epix uses Latex.

To compile, ePiX runs latex command on terminal. I'm always getting a message saying I've got memory limit.

The default engine when I run latex on terminal is pdfTeX. I want to change it to LuaLaTeX, it might solve my memory problem.

Any idea about how do that?

    I think this is the wrong question to be asking. In the ePiX distribution there is a shell script laps.in which sets the options that can be passed to the command. The easiest solution would be to modify a version of that script to accept lualatex as an option. – Alan Munn Apr 1 '15 at 2:42

The easiest way is to add an alias latex=lualatex to your .profile.
