is there any GUI miner for linux?

i am trying to get linuxcoin to work and i keep getting this error when i try to start a miner from the command line.

Exception in thread Thread-2:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/threading.py", line 532, in __bootstrap_inner
    self.run()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/threading.py", line 484, in run
    self.__target(*self.__args, **self.__kwargs)
  File "/opt/miners/poclbm/BitcoinMiner.py", line 272, in miningThread
    self.loadKernel()
  File "/opt/miners/poclbm/BitcoinMiner.py", line 373, in loadKernel
    binaryW = open(cacheName, 'wb')
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'a1e83b97617e24d438cfc4107fb4f147.elf'

the rest of it seems to be working great, i just cant get the miners to start.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

I have the same problem. I run poclbm directly with sudo.

I do:

1. cd opt/miners/poclbm
2. sudo chmod +x ./poclbm.py
3. sudo ./poclbm.py -d blah blah blah

Maybe you can just sudo the batch that he made though... I would try that.

It looks like "someone" (you?) ran poclbm as root.  poclbm creates an .elf file on every startup (I think).

You can try -
sudo rm -f a1e83b97617e24d438cfc4107fb4f147.elf

Then try running poclbm again.

Yeah, I have been. I don't think I did that the first time. I have had permissions issues with LinuxCoin since the first time I ran it, for whatever reason. They are easy to get around, but involve running things as root that I probably don't have to.
