Hi damnek,

Thanks for your feedback.
Yes I must admit my Satoshi client is never up to date now - hopefully the work Pieter+Mike are doing will improve things.

Re: your suggestions:

Scrolling - I don't know if there is much I can do as that would be in the hardware/OS code but I will have a look.
Using googlefu I have set what I believe is the right setting to adjust the mouse scroll speed. (As I have a trackpad I cannot tell so let me know after the next release if it fixes it).

QR code on by default. Yes I will change this I think otherwise people miss the functionality.
Graphs - this bug is fixed so they should appear properly in the next release.

If you start storing non-trivial amounts on MultiBit please, please, please make sure you backup your private keys and/ or wallets. (I normally export the private keys to an encrypted file and then copy all of the wallet/info/key files onto a couple of USB drives. The private keys are the crucial information).

I'm getting serious errors and cannot run multibit.

I've installed it on this same machine in the past with Ubuntu 12.04 and it worked fine. But recently I gave my computer a fresh install of Ubuntu and cleaned things up. In my attempt to reinstall MultiBit I am having difficulties I never had before.

My first one came with needing to install java. No problem. I hadn't yet done that with my fresh install.

Here is everything that happened during my console installation. My apologies for not putting it in a scroll window. I just spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to do that. I've never known. Somebody please tell me!

seth@oldbox:~/Downloads$ ls
multibit-0.4.12-linux.jar  wireless_driver
seth@oldbox:~/Downloads$ chmod +x multibit-0.4.12-linux.jar
seth@oldbox:~/Downloads$ java -jar multibit-0.4.12-linux.jar
The program 'java' can be found in the following packages:
 * default-jre
 * gcj-4.6-jre-headless
 * openjdk-6-jre-headless
 * gcj-4.5-jre-headless
 * openjdk-7-jre-headless
Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>

That 'HeadlessException' at the bottom is caused by when MultiBit wants to create a graphical interface, ie a window, on a non graphical machine.

I get it on our integration machine which has no display if I try to create a window with content in it.

Do you have any MultiBit shortcuts generated in your menu and do they fail in the same way ?

I think (not sure) it might be related to having X windows installed/available or not.

This discussion looks similar:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5362512/unable-to-run-java-gui-programs-with-ubuntu

They suggest it is the specific version of Java being used.

No shortcuts were created in my applications menu.

Is there a way to completely uninstall Multibit and try again, maybe with a different java?

Also, how do I post things inside smaller scroll down windows?

If you install a different version of Java MultiBit will pick it up when it starts.
You don't need to reinstall MultiBit itself. (for future reference, you can uninstall MultiBit if you want using 'java -jar uninstaller.jar')

To get a scroll window you surround the scroll text with 'code' tags. Select the text and then click the # button in the text formatting icons.

Hi Mila,

Did you get the notification last night ?
To save spamming people too much I normally do the notification mails when I add terms and know that I am preparing a release within a few days. That way it gives a chance for translators to 'catch the release'.

I will start doing the notify emails a bit more (say after adding a larger number of terms too) if you think it would be helpful.

no, I did not. thus my post about it.
not sure what is best nor appropriate. I like your approach, send only occasional emails when untranslated string count reaches certain level.
it just happened to me twice that i found 1-2 strings missing. that's all. I mean who is disturbed by a (bi-)weekly email that new strings are needed should create an email rule filter.

wait, maybe I've disabled email notifications, lemme check that.

Yeah I think you are right - I think I will start notifying a bit more.

Well, I have good news and bad news.

The good news is I got multibit up and running. It seems my java wasn't installed. I needed to remove some packages first. So, once java was installed properly multibit installed properly.

The bad news is that my wallet backups are old. I was under the impression that backed up wallets operated like the Satoshi client. After restoring my old system and importing my backed up wallets I see that I am missing about 10 days worth of deposits to those wallets. Am I correct in thinking that the money is gone or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Daily Anarchist,

That is good that you got it running.

The wallets have a logical connection to the blockchain, in that as new blocks appear they are searched for any transactions relevant to the wallets and then these transactions are put in the wallet. This is done as the blocks appear.

As you have a fresh install the new MultiBit has seen that it has no wallets (yet) and so updated directly to the head of the blockchain.
What MultiBit *should* do when a wallet is opened is check the last block that the wallet saw and go back and sync to that date. I say *should* because I have not implemented that so you have to do it manually.

Actually I would wait for a day or two until the next MultiBit release (0.4.13) as I have been doing some bug fixes and improvements in this area.

What you do is:
 1) go to the 'Tools | Reset blockchain and transactions' page.
 2) click on the 'Specify reset date' and choose a date before the period that you are missing transactions.
 3) click on the 'Reset blockchain and transactions'.
 4) MultiBit then replays the blocks from that date - just let it run and any transactions from that period will appear in your wallets.

It is worth just leaving it to 'do its thing' when it is replaying the blocks so that it updates fully.

I hope that makes sense !
Like I say, I've been doing some bug fixes in this area (amoungst others) so I recommend waiting for MultiBit 0.4.13 as it might save you some effort.

Is it easy to upgrade or do I need to uninstall, reinstall?

I'll wait for the upgrade.

For the code on the multibit.org website, it is pretty easy to upgrade as all the wallets/ user data are separate to the code.

You run the installer (or on a Mac copy the app to the Applications directory) and when you open the new MultiBit it picks up all your wallets and settings.


Uninstalling
On Win and Linux, there is an 'uninstall' shortcut and on the Mac you just delete the 'MultiBit-old-version.app'.
(I must admit I don't bother deleting the old versions as I use them for regression testing).


For the record: The 0.5.x beta versions are slightly different in that they work in a 'sandbox' to keep the encrypted wallets separate to the production wallets.

I am hoping to get the 0.4.13 out today or tomorrow.

Then I will put all the changes from the last few weeks into 0.5.5.
I also want to add in automatic export of encrypted private keys when you add new receiving addresses. There is also a report of a bug that sometimes incorrectly stores the wallets in the old format (which could wipe the encrypted private keys) that I need to fix. Always backup your wallets.

It is probably a week away.

Hi,
Do you think there is a chance of adding some of the most basic rpc commands to multibit in future? Stuff like getbalance(wallet) maybe? Send and something to check if a address received something? That would be huge leap forward (at least for me)... besides that: Great work :0)

Hi Nachtwind,

RPC and/or a command line onto the MultiBit data model would be useful but I don't plan to put RPC into MultiBit for a few reasons:
1) it opens up the attack surface so people will start hunting for unsecured RPC ports. At the moment MultiBit is as silent as I can make it (and will become more so in the future).
2) there is only so much a single dev can do
3) a better RPC / command line solution would be to use the wallets and object model and do a console application that does everything. You do not need all the GUI code for a server - better to strip it all away.

I did some initial work on this (MultiBitShell - there is a topic on it in this forum) based on a command line parser created by Mike Hearn. The MultiBit datamodel is pretty much all in bitcoinj format data. With the wallets now in protobuf format any C++, Java, python programmer can now parse the wallets.

It would make an interesting project for someone to pick up but honestly I do not have the spare capacity to do it properly and securely.
