In your .desktop file (in usr/share/applications), on the "Exec=" line, add your command line arguments before the %u
502  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Latest Armory doesn't work with latest Ubuntu, is it just me? on: February 04, 2014, 05:44:27 AM
Copy paste the content of the .desktop file in here. Type this in your termina to open itl:

gedit /usr/share/applications/armory.desktop.

Do the Armory offline or Armory testnet icons work?

Delete your local copy of the blockchain.

Nvm the first part. Just have that wallet sitting in Armory's datadir before building Armory's DB. Also, send me your log file at support@bitcoinarmory.com, link to your post so I can recognize you.

6. Import wallet the I created using "watching only copy"
Armory Scans Transaction history.  Then crashes.  

Does it crash or do you terminate the process yourself? Assuming the process is hanging, is Armory maxing one of your cores?

Delete your local copy of the blockchain and let BitcoinQt sync again.
505  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: The tale of the long lost one year stuck Bitcoin on: February 01, 2014, 05:25:12 PM
*sigh*

Where does one begin to tell the tale?

I talked to the Armory representative that works on the forums here, they suggested I download this other version of Armory. What was my issue? Synchronizing was stuck at 94% and would not move past that point. Oh well, so it worked for some time. Until four months later, when the price of Bitcoin exploded. Excited, I wanted to get my Bitcoins out, but now, Armory won't even start! That's right, nothing happens when I click it!

Should I restart my computer and try it? After reinstalling, it's never been the same.

Right now, I desperately want to get my Bitcoins out of Armory and back to the normal Bitcoin client. I wanted security, but what's security without liberty to withdraw at will?

Help would be appreciated.

Tl;dr

I need to transfer Bitcoins from Armory, but Armory won't start.


You can simply start Armory in Offline mode and extract the private keys. If you have start up issues, delete the databases folder in Armory's datadir. If your scanning gets stuck, you most likely have malformed blocks in your local copy of the blockchain. We're working to fix that, however redownloading the blockchain fixes that usually.

This information is available in the Troubleshooting and FAQ sections of our website.
506  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Is it possible to recover a backup created with armory with another software? on: January 31, 2014, 04:25:00 AM
We can't see ten years into the future, so, we can't answer that. Assuming github is up, and, Armory's developers don't tear down their source (Although, with the internet, a copy is always available), you could always implement it yourself, but, who says BTC exists in ten years? Who says the protocol is the same?

Eh, impossible to say, all we can say is that the wallet specifications are public as of now, so, someone could now, but, in ten years, :shrug:

You can't really take code out of github. People can always pull earlier commits. Github has this politic of never deleting anything pretty much.
507  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Armory keep crashing with 'BDM was not ready for your request! Waited 20 sec.' on: January 31, 2014, 03:55:40 AM
Yep, same issue here... I have a wallet that I imported from a paper backup, after that Armory rescans the blockchain and then crashes.

Log is here

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "ArmoryQt.py", line 4684, in Heartbeat
  File "ArmoryQt.py", line 1917, in finishLoadBlockchain
  File "armoryengine.pyc", line 7851, in fillAddressPool
  File "armoryengine.pyc", line 7817, in computeNextAddress
  File "CppBlockUtils.pyc", line 1164, in addScrAddress_5_
TypeError: in method 'BtcWallet_addScrAddress_5_', argument 4 of type 'uint32_t'

This is an entirely more interesting error, I'll get someone on it, thanks for the log.

Edit: Guess I shot myself in the foot with this one. I hoped to get someone else on this issue but I got 'volunteered' for it =P

At any rate, thanks for the log files. The more details you can give me about your use of Armory before the crash occurs, the more clues it'll give me

We hope sometimes in February, but nothing is set in stone yet.
509  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Armory and Mac OS on: January 30, 2014, 06:38:33 AM
We're hoping to have a full Mac support by 0.91, which is the next release.

How stable is the Mac OS version of Armory?

Has quite a few UI related issues still. We recently got someone full time on it so the future is bright on that front.

If I wanted to set up an offline wallet, and I need to assign a "watching-only" wallet on a computer that already has a wallet, how do I change it?

Once that is done, how do I remove the key data from the watching only wallet once it is converted (assuming the old wallet had key data on it)?

Not too sure what you are describing here.

This is how you should be going about it anyways: Create your wallet on your offline machine, create a paper or fragmented backup, verify the backup, then create a watching only wallet of your wallet and take that your online computer.

You can outright copy WO wallet that file to your datadir or import it through the import option.

If you have a wallet which private keys have been exposed to the network for a long period of time I'd suggest just moving these funds to a proper offline wallet. You can get rid of the private keys through Armory. Pick Delete/Remove this Wallet in your wallet properties window.

The empty queue is not an error. Queue.Queue raises when it is empty, that's just its mechanism to report there's is nothing left to pop.

The version your reported for BitcoinQt is actually Qt's version, not Bitcoin.

You have to describe your behavior before the crash first. Then possibly send me a log file at support@bitcoinarmory.com
512  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Armory - Discussion Thread on: January 28, 2014, 05:27:11 PM

Is it possible to have bitcoin Armory use an external blockchain rather than downloading the whole blockchain on my computer?
It would be nice to have that option.  At some point, it won't make sense to download terabytes of the blockchain and should be left to specialized miners/servers offering that service. 





We plan on implementing that eventually.
513  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Issues with "Verifying Source Code Authenticity" on: January 27, 2014, 05:35:43 AM
I always feel uneasy about the fact that so much money has to depend on MIT's server working properly and uninfilitrated, wonder if there is a way we can employ blockchain itself for further authetication Roll Eyes

Sounds like a job for Namecoin!
514  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Armory (0.90 Beta) hanging on: January 26, 2014, 12:45:45 AM
Are you building the DB without a wallet loaded?

I've received a log file with no body text. The email is titled "logfile" with just the one 84.2kb log attached. Is this yours?
515  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Ram Upgrade on: January 25, 2014, 09:46:06 PM
Is 6gig or ram going to be a good middle ground?  I have a 2gb lying around and bought a 4gb not to long ago.

Just running the 4gb stick now (32bit) and even with windows only seeing 3gig worth, still rarely go over the 50% mark. Really don't want to spend the money to go for 8gig just for amory only.

I always have a taskbar full of icons and constantly switching between. So it's not like I'm just checking email, close down and open internet explorer, close down and open kingsoft office...

Kind of annoying that it always takes 20mins or more to 'build databases". Not only that but can hear my hd grinding away for the entire time.  Or maybe the solution is to run it while taking a shower, or making dinner Smiley

Are you scanning the chain on every start with 0.90? This is a bug, we have fixes ready for the next version.
516  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Added specific 'connect' peers (not addnode), now armory doesn't launch on: January 25, 2014, 09:44:06 PM
There are actually 3 places where Armory gets its data in that regard:

1) The block height is fetched straight from the raw blockchain files
2) Assuming you let Armory manage bitcoind, it will query bitcoind's status through the RPC, mainly for the progress bar. Armory won't use the RPC at all if you manage BitcoinQt yourself.
3) Armory connects as a network node on localhost to your (local, obviously) bitcoin instance to monitor the network and push its transactions.
517  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Added specific 'connect' peers (not addnode), now armory doesn't launch on: January 25, 2014, 06:58:24 PM
add a connect=127.0.0.1

scratch that, its bind=127.0.0.1 that you need
