I downloaded bitcoin-0.3.24-linux.tar.gz , unpacked it and ran ' bitcoin-0.3.24 ' in terminal. (I am using Ubuntu 10.04).
Got a pop-up showing my first Bitcoin Address and the related items - send, receive , history, make new address.
Now in my Home I have a .bitcoin folder which cannot be accessed (at lest the folders inside cannot be accessed).
But if i click on ' bitcoin-0.3.24 ' which is still in my Downloads folder I go to --> bin -->32 --> bitcoin --> the innitial pop-up window with the first address and the rest.
Is this the correct way to access my Bicoin Addresses (i.e by clicking on ' bitcoin-0.3.24 ' ) ?
