Hi.

Using Ubuntu 11.10, I've just installed Electrum:
[]# sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-pip
[]# sudo pip install http://download.electrum.org/download/Electrum-1.7.tar.gz#md5=4580c7ab656174a20334062b7fc1201f

But when trying to execute the program:
[]# electrum

I get this error message:
Error: Unknown GUI: classic

I tried with other GUIs:
[]# electrum -g lite
Error: Unknown GUI: lite
[]# electrum -g gtk
Error: Unknown GUI: gtk
[]# electrum -g text
Error: Unknown GUI: text

What am I doing wrong? Thank you very much.

try this:

Code:
sudo pip install http://download.electrum.org/download/Electrum-1.7.tar.gz#md5=4580c7ab656174a20334062b7fc1201f --upgrade

Electrum: the convenience of a web wallet, without the risks
