I am trying to use libbitcoin and the SX command line tools on Ubuntu 12.04. I would just like to be able to query the balance of an address using `sx balance 1...` instead of having to go through blockchain.info.

But so far im making no progress. Everything seems to fail pretty much silently, with zero debug output.

I am pretty sure I need to somehow tell libbitcoin how it should interface with the blockchain ...

But how do I do this?

I have tried doing 'sx initchain` on my bitcoin-qt blockchain directory.

I have tried the `download-blockchain.sh` script which simply fails to authenticate while trying to rsync the blockchain from 46.4.92.107


Any help much appreciated!

Hi! The instructions are here:

http://libbitcoin.dyne.org/obelisk-setup.html

But you can also use a public Obelisk server as listed here:

http://libbitcoin.dyne.org/servers.html

(some might be down but after the crowd funding we are going to setup some nice stable servers for people)

The config file for sx is in PREFIX/share/sx/sx.cfg. Copy this to ~/.sx.cfg (PREFIX is usually /usr/local/share/)

You can install sx, obelisk and everything using:

wget http://sx.dyne.org/install-sx.sh
sudo bash install-sx.sh
