Looking to Fresh install

Looking to Fresh install
I have been trying to install Electrum 3.3.8 in Ubuntu 16.04 and ran into some issues with python etc. I opted out and just downloaded the app image , that seemed to work fine.
I went ahead and deleted the app image and all folders to try and go back to install for Linux. please take a look at the screen shot and let me know how i can delete this Electrum Bitcoin Wallet shortcut which does execute anything.

Once i can delete this shortcut i will go back and try to install for Linux as appose to just the app image.

[03:05] what's up peeps [03:05] ahaha [03:05] haha [03:05] how long has this been going on? [03:05] I'm not familiar with this one [03:06] its been there for a while [03:06] it's been here since the end of october [03:06] we just need to get it cleaned up a bit and put it up for download [03:06] but yeah, we have a link on our homepage [03:07] http://www.gnu.org/software/bzip2/download [03:07] the .tar.gz we downloaded from that site earlier [03:07] that was just an archive of the compressed file [03:07] it doesn't include the header of the compressed file [03:07] that is something we could fix up [03:07] so, here is where you download it [03:07] http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/download.html [03:07] thanks, that should do it for now [03:07] you can go there [03:07] yeah, i'll be waiting for the update to finish [03:08] alright, well, let me know when it's finished [03:08] it'll take a while for the last bits to download, so you can just put the .el file in the directory you extracted it to [03:08] i'm on linux now and it worked [03:08] sorry, i guess i've never had linux experience before [03:08] oh well, sorry, i thought i was good at it :P [03:08] well, i've never had anything else before, so i'm still learning [03:08] i think the way i did it is pretty similar to the way it works for windows in terms of setting up a shortcut to the folder, then you just hit the key combination, and the folder's contents are automatically copied to that shortcut [03:08] so there's not as much need for that special shortcut [03:08] but you can do that with a command line tool if you want to :P [03:08] anyway, nice find [03:08] it looks like I will be stuck with my $200 for a little while... [03:08] so, if you're interested, you can send me some coins :D [03:08] well, thanks [03:09] i'm definitely going to do that [03:09] i don't have a lot of time now though [03:10] but i have to go to my computer tomorrow, so i will be back for the start of the discussion [03:11] well, no worries [03:11] i look forward to it! [03:11] thanks for inviting me! [03:11] i'd be happy to answer questions you have [03:11] I'm not sure how far off i am, though [03:12] if i can help, I will [03:12] what's the link to the newbie thread? [03:12] is it the one with that big edit [03:13] I was wondering if you could answer one thing for me [03:13] what are you planning on doing? [03:13] for the moment i'm going to try and write another episode [03:14] what about it? [03:14] but it's not the greatest, i've been working on another thing [03:14] ok [03:14] are you working on a new album? [03:15] yes [03:15] oh wow, i hope so, but if not then i hope you're happy i'm able to keep it going, that was a lot of fun and it was really rewarding and i was really happy when you finished with the lyrics to it, but i'm glad you're still doing it, you've been a fantastic artist over the years, and it was fun getting to watch you do it, you know that right? [03:16] yes, but at the same time it was quite stressful at times, so it was quite hard at times, and i was so relieved when you decided it was finished, but I had a lot of stress about the future, because i was worried, because you haven't been home all week [03:16] and I wasn't sure if you had ever finished your work, because I never get to see you, because your parents live so far away and your friends are mostly in California [03:17] so yeah [03:17] well it was good, but it was a bit slow and it would have been better if i didn't have to download the source [03:17] so what i'm saying is maybe some things could have been done better [03:17] i think the most important thing was a bit of a speed up [03:18] but even that was probably just a matter of doing a different bitmap [03:18] it could probably be even faster if i had more of the code [03:18] we could have waited for it to be made faster [03:18] or just had a better solution with a less work intensive solution [03:18] (i think) [03:18] (i have no clue though) [03:18] i know what you mean about the 'more complicated solution' thing, but the fact that a client could still make an informed decision on whether or not to make their own fork is not something i've heard anywhere else in the bitcoin world. I can't understand how that's possible. [03:18] i think your argument is that some clients, when forced to use their own code, might make the wrong decision. [03:18] that doesn't seem plausible [03:19] it seems like the only way for any fork to be safe for the majority is if all miners have the same version [03:20] and then you have to figure out how to get the rest to switch [03:21] I would argue you can't, as all the miners need to be convinced of the validity of the new fork to get all the nodes to switch [03:22] There is no way of doing it by brute force [03:22] As you cannot have a majority of miners, if you want to convince some nodes to change, you'd need to have a majority of miners. That would be impossible. [03:23] I think the most realistic option would be to have a simple proof of stake system where it is a matter of time until you have a majority, but I don't think it is a realistic way to go for something like Bitcoin [03:24] If you want to solve the consensus problem, you can't have majority of miners

FAQ & Daily General Discussion - December 22, 2017

Welcome!
As only 2 stickied threads are possible, we have decided to combine the "Are you new here" and the daily discussion thread. XRB is attracting more and more people, both veterans and newbies in the cryptoworld. As XRB is quite a bit different than other coins/blockchains, it's normal that a lot of users have (the same) questions. So please, before making a new thread, read this post first and use the search bar! Threads that are created which contain a question to which an answer is available here, will be locked and directed to this post.
 
Guidelines for posting in this thread:
 
Questions, debates, meta issues, etc are all welcome. Breaking news should be posted separately from this thread. Rules:
 
Be respectful to one another. Follow the golden rule. No trolling or shilling.
 
Guidelines for posting new threads:
 
Is your thread something that does not fit in the daily thread or in another 'general' thread? Do you have a question, and it's not in the list below? Do you have exiting news to post? Did you use the search bar first? Good, go ahead :-)
 
The Whitepaper: In logical order, we start with the whitepaper. It contains the complete details about RaiBlocks, including some more technical details. Even if you're not technical, take a quick look at it. It will explain a lot! https://raiblocks.net/media/RaiBlocks_Whitepaper__English.pdf
 
The FAQs: Now the technical FAQs, a document explaining how it works, how it compares to other coins, ... https://raiblocks.net/media/RaiBlocks_FAQ.pdf
 
Let's keep a decent overview of other, more practical questions :-)
 
How do I buy or store XRB? Check out these guides: https://www.reddit.com/RaiBlocks/comments/7i0co0/the_definitive_guide_to_buying_and_storing/ https://www.reddit.com/RaiBlocks/comments/7iv89b/how_to_buy_xrb_without_waiting_for_a_transaction/
 
My desktop wallet isn't syncing! Do the numbers between the brackets still move? Good. The numbers before the parentheses are the number of blocks the wallet has verified, the numbers between parentheses is the amount of downloaded-but-not-yet-verified blocks. Is the wallet unlocked? Good, it needs to be unlocked to be able to sync. Still nothing? Go to 'accounts' - 'use account'. Still nothing? Close the wallet, reopen it.
 
What is a representative? Ah, so you haven't read the whitepaper haven't you... When conflicting blocks arise, a vote will have to be cast on which block to accept. Since you won't be online 24/7, you can outsource your voting power to a representative, who are online 24/7. They cannot access your funds, and you can change it anytime.
 
What is the incentive to run a node? Apart from helping the network and making it more secure, this user gives a detailed answer: https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency/comments/7j4xgt/i_just_sent_1000xrb_from_one_wallet_to_anothedr4l587/
 
My transaction isn't visible in my wallet or it says 'not pocketed' on the block explorer! Is your wallet fully synced? Yes? Good, it needs to be completely synced before it will show your balances. Nothing? Go to "https://raiblocks.net/account/index.php?acc=ADDRESS HERE". Do you see the transaction there (as 'not pocketed')? Good, that means that it's just a matter of showing it in your wallet, the coins are linked to your address already. In your wallet, go to 'Accounts' - 'Use account', 'Back', 'Advanced' - 'Search for receivables'. Did it work? Good. If not, go to 'Advanced' - 'Account explorer', hit refresh. Still nothing? Close/kill the wallet and reopen it. Still nothing? Go to 'Advanced' and change the unit from Mxrb to xrb and back to Mxrb. Stillll nothing? Fine, make a thread!
 
The syncing is sooo slow!! On HDD, it can take a couple days for it to sync. Why? Every block is only 400bytes in size, they all need to be written on your HDD. SSD takes about 12h. Check the bottom of this post for a shortcut if you use HDD (or SSD and have no patience :-) ).
 
My withdrawal from BitGrail/Mercatox isn't working!! BitGrail and Mercatox are having quite some issues, both due to a bug in their RaiBlocks node, and because of being overwelmed. They have to do each withdrawal manually. Log a ticket and have patience! Mercatox support: https://mercatox.com/support BitGrail support: to be added when they're back
 
We need a new exchange & website & ...!! Indeed, large exchange would be super!. But before that, we need a new website, mobile wallets, ... Those are in the make. Don't ask about the new exchanges, no one knows!
 
What is the incentive to run a node? There is no monetary reward, but tread this post/comment! https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency/comments/7j4xgt/i_just_sent_1000xrb_from_one_wallet_to_anothedr4l587/
 
We're limited to 7k TPS, how's that scalable!? The current limitation of 7K TPS is a hardware limitation of writing data to the disk, not a protocol limitation. As hardware improves, so will the TPS limit.
 
Does the receiver account have to be online when I create my send transaction? No, whenever the send transaction goes out, the funds are "not pocketed" by the receiver. The funds are as good as the receivers and cannot be revoked by the sender. "Not pocketed" funds do NOT expire.
 
What are "not pocketed" funds? A transaction consists of a "send" and a "receive" transaction. During the period where a "send" doesn't have its partnering "receive" transaction, the accounts are considered "not pocketed" by the recipient. "Not pocketed" funds are securely the receiver's funds. Once the receiver's wallet comes online, is fully synced, and unlocked, the funds will automatically be signed into their account chain.
 
What are the requirements to run a node? Currently the only real recommendation is to have a fast storage medium, such as an SSD instead of HDD. This is because currently the full node software does a lot of disk I/O for rapidly processing transactions. This may change with future full node versions that better utilize available system RAM and relax disk I/O.
 
What do the numbers at the top of the desktop wallet mean? The numbers will look like: processed (unprocessed downloaded) Where "processed" is the number of downloaded blocks that your node has processed, and "unprocessed downloaded" are blocks that your software has downloaded but not processed yet. To be fully synced, all blocks must be processed. As new transactions are created on the network, they will be downloaded into the "unprocessed" category to be subsequently processed.
 
How can I run a full node? The desktop wallet is already a full node! Just by running it you are helping
 
Can I send funds to my wallet before it is synced? Yes. Funds can be sent to any "xrb_" address, even if they were created in an offline environment. RaiBlocks is exactly the same as ethereum or bitcoin in this sense. The funds will show up when the wallet is fully synced with the network. Make sure to back up your seed!
 
How do I backup my wallet? Just write down your seed and keep it in a safe place. All accounts generated from that seed will be generated again (in order) when you restore that seed.
 
Can I reuse an address? Yes, unlike IOTA you can reuse addresses like in Bitcoin and Ethereum. Please understand the reasoning for this; IOTA does this because it is a drawback to the quantum-proof digital signature algorithm they use. RaiBlocks' current digital signature algorithm is not quantum proof, but the devs have expressed interest in changing to a quantum-proof algortihm as the field matures and quantum computers become a more significant threat to the network.
 
What's up with the units? Currently the ticker XRB on exchanges represents 1 Mxrb (or million xrb). As the name suggests, 1Mxrb = 1000000 xrb. The smallest unit of RaiBlocks is the raw. There are 1024 raw in an xrb, or 1030 raw in an Mxrb/XRB. Whenever people are talking, they are generally talking in XRB or equivalently Mxrb
 
What is the max supply? The max supply is 133,248,290 XRB. For units see the question above. Why this number? Well RaiBlock's value is kept in a uint128 variable (unsigned 128-bit integer). An uint128 has max value (2128)-1, which is approximately 340,282,366,920,938,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. This was the original number of "raw" in RaiBlocks. RaiBlocks was distributed via a Captcha faucet distribution system; of which 133,248,290 XRB were distributed. Due to some non-technical issues, the faucet distribution was cut short and the remaining quantity was burned. This leaves just 133,248,290 XRB (approximately 133,248,290,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 raw) circulating.
 
Can someone access my funds even if I use a password (desktop wallet) Yes. The password feature of the desktop wallet just encrypts the seed locally on your computer. If anyone gets access to your plaintext (unencrypted seed, the thing we tell you to backup) they have access to your funds. The benefit of the password is that if someone has access to your computer, they don't immediately have access to your raiblocks.
 
Whats a seed? What's a private key? Whats a public key? Any time you set up a Raiblocks address (such as creating a new wallet) , you will be provided with a "Seed" which is 64 characters of text that is unique to your wallet. Do not store your seed online (e.g do not screenshot, email or save it in a file) because anyone with the seed can access all accounts on it and take all of your Rai! The reason why it is provided is so that if for any reason you need to recover your account(s) you can do so without the original wallet you created the account on, so keep it safe!
 
Tips & Tricks * Transferring BTC between exchanges can be expensive and relatively fast (think hour(s)), or cheap and slow (think a few days). LTC or ETH transfers are faster, but make sure to check the discrepancy in BTC-LTC or BTC-ETH prices on markets with low volume! * 1 XRB as bought on an exchange is 1 million xrb, aka Rai. 1 Rai = 1024th raw, the smallest units on the RaiBlocks network. * 'Not pocketed' can stay like that indefinitely. If you want to spend the coins, you'll have to sync your wallet and create a 'RECEIVE' block though (this is done by Advanced - Check for receivables in the desktop wallet).

Daily update of data.ldb for 1st sync (December 22th, 2017) Want to skip the long sync time? Save your seed, check Readme.txt if you are going to use this method to speed up 1st wallet sync! Confirm the checksums/links in the #support channel at https://chat.raiblocks.net/. It's usually posted by core dev SergSW. This link or this slightly newer one will guide you through it, but use the links below for the most recent files.

Dogecoin on Linux - The Complete Beginner's Guide

I'm writing this because I couldn't find a single condensed guide on compiling the wallet and running mining software on linux, specficially Ubuntu/Linux Mint. I combed Bitcoin and Litecoin forums for similar problems I was running into and eventually got everything nailed down, so here it is in one place, for new Shibes.
If you want to make a Dogecoin directory in your downloads folder to keep things organized, you will need to modify these commands to refelct the change. So instead of going to ~/Downloads/ you will need to go to ~/Downloads/Dogecoin and be sure to put the zipped files there when you download them, but the commands will be the same otherwise.
cwayne18 put in the work to make a PPA for the QT client here.
Ubunutu/Mint/Debian users should be able to install the client with the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cwayne18/doge sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dogecoin-qt 
To update using this method, run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade dogecoin-qt 
Compiling the Wallet Manually
I suggest using the PPA above, but if you want to compile manually, here you go.
1)Download the newest source from here. If you want to check out the Github page, click here
2)Unzip the package with the native client OR, navigate to your downloads and unzip
cd ~/Downloads unzip dogecoin-master.zip 
3)Now it's time to compile. You will need to install the dependencies, just copy and paste the following code. It will be a fairly large download and could take some time. It is always important to update before installing any new software, so we'll do that first and then install the dependencies.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libqrencode-dev qt4-qmake libqtgui4 libqt4-dev sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev libminiupnpc8 libboost-all-dev build-essential git libboost1.53-all-dev 
4)Once that is done, go to the doge-coin master directory and compile:
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste sed -i 's/-mgw46-mt-sd-1_53//g' dogecoin-qt.pro qmake USE_UPNP=- USE_QRCODE=0 USE_IPV6=0 make -j3 
After running the qmake command you will likely see some text similar to
Project MESSAGE: Building without UPNP support Project MESSAGE: Building with UPNP supportRemoved plural forms as the target language has less forms. If this sounds wrong, possibly the target language is not set or recognized. 
It's perfectly normal, so don't worry about that.
Your Dogewallet is ready to go! The executable is in ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste and called dogecoin-qt. Your wallet information is in ~/.dogecoin. You can run the wallet at any time by opening terminal and typing
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste ./dogecoin-qt 
Future upgrades to dogewallet are easy. Back up your wallet.dat, and simply follow the same directions above, but you'll be unzipping and building the newer version. You will likely need to rename the old dogecoin-master directory in ~/Downloads before unzipping the newest version and building. Also, it is likely that you will not need to install the dependencies again.
Alternate Method For Installing Dogecoin Wallet from Nicebreakfast
After installing the dependencies listed in step 3, open terminal, then navigate to where you want Dogecoin Wallet stored and run:
git clone https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin ./autogen.sh ./configure make 
then when the wallet is updated just run
git pull 
from the dogecoin directory.
GPU Mining
GPU mining requires CGminer. My suggestion is to get the executable already built. The creator of cgminer has removed the built file from his website, but I've uploaded it here
sudo apt-get install pkg-config opencl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev autoconf libtool automake m4 ncurses-dev cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built.tar.bz2 
Don't use anything newer than 3.7.2. The newer versions of CGMiner don't support GPU mining.
That's it! You have cgminer ready to go! You will run cgminer with the following syntax
cd ~/Downloads/cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built/ ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://SERVERNAME:PORT -u WORKER.ID -p PASS 
A good guide for fine tuning cgminer can be found here; follow the litecoin example.
EDIT
I had trouble getting cgminer running with a single line command, but running it via an executable .sh file works. This is covered in the cgminer setup guide I posted above but I'll put it here too. In the same directory that has the cgminer executable, you need to make a file called cgminer.sh and make it executable. It should contain the follwing:
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export DISPLAY=:0 find *.bin -delete sleep 5 ./cgminer 
Then you can call cgminer in terminal by doing ./cgminer.sh You will need a cgminer.conf file containing all your options. All of this is covered in the guide that is linked above.
A quick note about AMD drivers: They used to be a huge PITA to install and get working, but the newest Catalyst drivers are great. There's a GUI installer, everything works out of the box, and there is a lot of documentation. You can download them here: AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta Linux
CPU Mining
For CPU mining I use minerd because it doesn't require any work to get running, simply download it and get to work. Download the built file for your machine 32-bit or 64-bit, and then unzip it and you're ready to go!
cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2-linux-x86.tar.gz 
The executable is called minerd and it will be in ~/Downloads but you can move it to wherever you like. To run it, pull up terminal and do
cd ~/Downloads minerd --url=stratum+tcp://SERVER:PORT --userpass=USERNAME.WORKERNAME:WORKERPASSWORD 
You're done! Happy mining!
Common Issues
I ran into this and I've seen others with this problem as well. Everything installs fine but there is a shared library file that isn't where it should be. In fact, it isn't there at all.
 libudev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 
In terminal, do
sudo updatedb locate libudev.so.0.13.0 
And it will probably return a path /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. Inside that directory there's a library file called libudev.so.0.13.0. You'll need to make a symlink (aka shortcut) that links libudev.so.1 to libudev.so.0.13.0 So, assuming you're working with libudev.so.0.13.0 do this
cd /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu sudo ln -s libudev.so.0.13.0 libudev.so.1 
Now if you do
ln -l 
You should see
libudev.so.1 -> ./libudev.so.0.13.0 
Meaning you've made the symlink. Also, the text for libudev.so.1 will be blue.

Malware and potential Bitcoin miner + Misc issues

I recently acquired very blatant Malware downloading something. I've ran Malwarebytes, rkill, Adwcleaner, and Hitmanpro and they cleaned everything up and now Malwarebytes comes up with nothing. I attempted to use Roguekiller but the exe refuses to run. So I'm not sure I'm good on this front. (I haven't attempted combofix.)
More importantly, I believe I have a bitcoin miner of sorts that wasn't dealt with by them. Whenever I am connected to the internet my CPU and Memory usage skyrockets. It's doing so via sprlzhc.exe. Which is doing so via tiauhrz.exe, via wdemtpisvc.exe. Google searching all of them comes up with nothing so I'm assuming it is custom malware. Totalvirus via Process Explorer also doesn't work because of the path.
Pictures here (Offline - Online): https://imgur.com/a/ZMsmx
Note the two CLIENTS in my applications. They are only there online. The sprlzhc.exe will open multiple and start a new one and close an old one frequently which I think is proof of mining. (I assume it works similar to folding @ home.) Also the Ctfmon.exe wasn't there earlier. Only just showed up now when I took the picture.

Tiauhrz is located at useAppdata/Local/tiauhrz and I'm unable to delete it or even enter it. I need permission for it. A thread I found suggested to boot with a linux usb drive to bypass the NFTS permission, which I'm about to attempt.
The wdemtpisvc.exe however is located in /System32 so I'm hesitant to delete it. It's properties says it was created during the infection, though. Hovering over says "Company: Toshiba" so I'm even more suspicious considering I built the PC.
I tried safe mode and System restore (Wouldn't open) so now I'm going to attempt the linux method and delete the tiauhrz folder, but I want to know if deleting wdemtpisvc is safe or not. Will this method work? Is there anything else I should attempt as well? Should I just wipe the drive?
Sidenotes: It greyed out some of my shortcuts. Also, Whenever I search something with chrome it does a google search, then redirects to search60-com with the search. I have yet to see how it screwed up Firefox. Any ideas on these?

PIVX REBRANDED WALLET UPDATE

The first ever PIVX rebranded v.2.1.4.0 wallet has been released. Compiled wallet binaries for various OS should be put up in the repo link below.
https://github.com/PIVX-Project/PIVX/releases/tag/v2.1.4.0
IMPORTANT WALLET UPGRADE STEPS
If you have an existing wallet, you MUST rename the following 2 items 'BEFORE' you start the new wallet as the foldefile naming has changed.
  1. Shut down the wallet gracefully either via CLI or via wallet GUI.
  2. For linux users, hidden directory ".darknet" needs to be renamed to ".pivx".
  3. For Windows users, similar will need to be done to your wallet.dat directory. (usually located in %APPDATA%)
  4. For everyone, "darknet.conf" needs to be renamed to "pivx.conf".
  5. Replace the wallet binaries with the updated v2.1.4.0 binaries.
  6. Start the wallet!
For Windows users: I personally recommend Windows wallet users to specify the wallet.dat directory via a shortcut method. Basically create a shortcut the qt executable and append the -datadir= and specify a folder you created.
e.g. C:\Coins\PIVX\pivx-qt.exe -datadir=C:\Coins\PIVX\blockchain
Then the wallet and chain/dat/conf files will all be within a single folder instead of it going to %APPDATA%. This trick works for pretty much every coin under the sun btw. (bitcoin, litecoin, whatever coin etc etc) P.S. If you have an existing wallet.dat & conf files, you'll need to move them to the new -datadir folder.
