I'm running Natty under Kubuntu 64bit. I'm getting no connections at all. I tried adding the nodes using the following code from another thread on this forum:

Code:
bitcoin -addnode=69.164.218.197 -addnode=64.22.103.150 -addnode=173.242.112.53 -addnode=178.79.147.99 -addnode=184.106.111.41 -addnode=91.85.220.84 -addnode=173.224.125.222 -addnode=86.5.50.90 -addnode=178.255.199.86

I get:

Code:
bitcoin: command not found

I am using version 1.3.21 Any idea on what I should do?

You need to tell your shell where the bitcoin binary is located. It varies by distribution, but you might try:
Code:
/usr/bin/bitcoin -addnode...
or
Code:
/usr/local/bin/bitcoin
or
Code:
~/.bitcoin/bitcoin

Use your file search utility if none of that works.

The Binary is located in the 64 folder, the .bitcoin has no binary, but it does have a wallet.dat file. None of those commands worked, no matter what I tried. Still not sure how to get this thing going.

navigate to that 64 directory and run
Code:
bitcoin -addnode=69.164.218.197 -addnode=64.22.103.150 -addnode=173.242.112.53 -addnode=178.79.147.99 -addnode=184.106.111.41 -addnode=91.85.220.84 -addnode=173.224.125.222 -addnode=86.5.50.90 -addnode=178.255.199.86
from there
if you want to be able to run it from anywhere either add that directory to your PATH or move bitcoin file to /bin/

Lol, I've already done that since my first post, I'm still getting the same message.

Done what exactly? Tried to change directory where the binary is and run the command, moved binary to /bin/ or added 64 directory to the PATH?

Also, can you navigate where your binary is, type:

Code:
ls -la
and post the output?

When I first ran bitcoin, I had to do it from the 64 folder, so when I tried to add those nodes that you had posted on that other thread, the "bitcoin: command not found" is what I got in return.

This is what's in my 64 folder:
("****" is in place of my computer and user name, private info)
Code:
****@****n:~/bitcoin-0 1.3.21/bin/64$ ls -la
total 14980
drwxr-x--x 2 ****     4096 2011-04-27 10:59 .
drwxr-x--x 4 ****     4096 2011-04-15 10:09 ..
-rwxr-x--x 1 **** 11343968 2011-04-27 10:59 bitcoin
-rwxr-x--x 1 ****  3966464 2011-04-27 10:59 bitcoind
****@****:~/bitcoin-0 1.3.21/bin/64$

It's there, but when I try to add the nodes it says the command's not found :/

Try

Code:
./bitcoin -addnode=69.164.218.197 -addnode=64.22.103.150 -addnode=173.242.112.53 -addnode=178.79.147.99 -addnode=184.106.111.41 -addnode=91.85.220.84 -addnode=173.224.125.222 -addnode=86.5.50.90 -addnode=178.255.199.86

Hmm... Weird, it worked, but I could've sworn I tried that variation.

Thanks,
