News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

i don't know.  probably?  

okay, so now i know where unobtanium.conf file goes, but i still don't know what it is.  do i just make a blank text file and save it as unobtanium.conf?  if so, what exactly do i need put as text?  is there something i can copy paste?

can you see how terrible this all is for an "average" user of crypto?  I mean, I grew up with computers, I work for a leading tech company, on the internet all day every day...muggles think i'm some tech whiz just for using crypto, so if someone like me is having a hard time figuring this out, then we're completely fucked for "mass" adoption.  People are always like "we need to tell our friends and family to get in on this" but this whole shit show is a perfect example of why I am not "spreading the good word," so to speak.

please don't anyone take offense from my ranting, i am just extremely frustrated and need to vent.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Crypto generally is in no way ready for prime time use or adoption. Yes, you can make it work, but for the "average Joe" right now I just don't see it.

Realistically android/i device and other mobile wallets are much easier to understand and adopt.

Providing a .conf file ready to download with short explanation where to put it on the website maybe no problem?
Usually the Unobtanium wallet syncs up without any problems.  If it doesn't, you may be able to solve the problem by adding nodes to your Unobtanium.conf file. While it's not very difficult if you know the trick, a lot of people don't know the trick. Here's how to do it.


First, grab a list of 0.10 client peers from the Chainz explorer and put them into a sample Unobtanium.conf file.

Or alternatively, you can download a pre-made Unobtanium.conf file from Unobtanium.uno.  Choose whether you want the .conf (text) or .zip file, and download it to your desktop.
http://unobtanium.uno/download/Unobtanium.conf

http://unobtanium.uno/download/Unobtanium.conf.zip

Edit this file with any text editor, taking care that it is saved as a .conf file, and not renamed to a .txt file.
Change the Username and Password. The rest you can leave as it is.

note: because by default Windows hides file extensions, I recommend taking a moment to make a quick change to the Windows File Explorer settings. See the below image for instructions:  


Before proceeding, close your Uno wallet client.

Now we have to put the Unobtanium.conf file in the Unobtanium roaming data folder, where the wallet will find it.  Here's how to do that:

In MS Windows, press Windows+R to bring up the Run menu.  Type in %AppData% and then click/press Ok.  Like This....



A file folder will open.  Scroll down until you see the Unobanium folder, and then click on it.  You should now see the contents of this folder, including your wallet.dat file. Don't delete anything in this folder.

Now find your Unobtanium.conf file on your desktop, and drag it into this folder.

Restart your wallet.

You're good to go.

----

This is for Windows. Sadly, I can't tell you how to do this on Mac or Linuxs. Perhaps someone else will step up and write it. You can use the same Unobtanium.conf file for Win/Mac/Linux.

Hi Crypto and welcome.
Yes this is often my problem.
It is like having to be a mechanic before you drive a car.
Currencies these playthings will never be till developers learn that Joe Public does not want to learn the fiddle, just wants to play.
I have started thinking on these lines.... in the Late 1800 early 1900 most people who drove WHERE mechanics.
Then they made better cars.
It is up to developers to make better wallets.
So far they seem to be happy with the generic Bitcoin yuk thing.
................................
Weird bit is the world is about to go cashless... Visa/ebt cards just work.
Ipad banking...just works.
So the crypto idea may just be that, an idea that came and went, before the (intelligent to be sure) geeks discovered the masses and the potential of the idea.
(I say geek in an affectionate way...I was one till this new breed came along hehe).
They seem to be content with the effort so far but not to spread the wings and change humanity, which could be entirely possible if people did not have the enforced banking, at the point of a gun.
It is an idea whose time has come...but along with that needs to just work without effort by the user, other than remembering a strong password and not putting usb in the microwave.
That is the real challenge of the next year or two, otherwise, Visa (owned by the banks) wins.
Regards,
Tacktic.

I was just reading my post and had a revelation of sorts.
Why do we even have wallets?
..................
why not plug and play, separate to the data base efforts of the computers running the show, from a smart device for transactions.
...................
Also when I said the idea will go away...
it wont, it is just the big banking cartels with use blockchain technologies and lock out the decentralised models now emerging.
Is all about the numbers of users.
If you cannot spend a bitcoin there is no point in mining one and back to the 10000 btc pizza.
....................
We probably have 3 years before Wall Street decides to stop playing.
The market cap of bitcoin is peanuts if they wanted to buy them and not use them all.
So need to make it idiot and bullet proof in half that time.

Don't loose faith ladies and gentlemen!

There will always be local currencies. Despite the volition of the Banksters to stomp it out, we will ultimately prevail!

Thanks, it's also linked from the OP now, just above the node list.
I will try to remember to regularly update the unobtanium.conf file on Unobtanium.uno, and also keep the list of nodes in the OP updated.
Still, the best place to get nodes is from the chainz explorer, where they list the nodes they have seen. Be sure to only use 0.10 nodes.

I had a quick wallet question.

When we download the new Beta Windows wallet, it is in zip format.

I unzip it and there is only the QT.exe file.

Do I need to copy the QT.exe file into the directory of the "old" wallet to over-write the former QT.exe? Or, just leave it in it's own directory by itself?

Thanks!

Yes, as long as you have backed up the wallet.dat, you can delete the old qt and everything, and run the new one.

Do an uninstall just to be clean. If it still misbehaves run unobtanium-qt --reindex from cmd.exe and you should be golden.

If you are going to mine Bitcoin, why wouldn't you choose a merge pool? They can either afford to have lower fees or higher payouts. It makes sense.
I am having fun mining at mmpool right now, enjoying my Uno dust. Smiley

@ Krypto Superdog: welcome. Feel free to vent; your cause is just. We gotta bust our humps to market ourselves to 'The 99%'

@ Escrowin' the Chinese translations? Whatever makes sense.

@ Community providing tech support: I lack these skills. The fact that I can get help here is greatly appreciated, and I will work hard otherwise to make us all cashmere-helicopter rich us all better people in the eyes of our mums.

@ The A-Team photo: if you ever find yourself within 1100 metres of a cigar-chomper whose gloved trigger-finger is inside the trigger guard of a cocked assault rifle, move swiftly behind the nearest large concrete object, and remain there.

i don't know.  probably?  

okay, so now i know where unobtanium.conf file goes, but i still don't know what it is.  do i just make a blank text file and save it as unobtanium.conf?  if so, what exactly do i need put as text?  is there something i can copy paste?

can you see how terrible this all is for an "average" user of crypto?  I mean, I grew up with computers, I work for a leading tech company, on the internet all day every day...muggles think i'm some tech whiz just for using crypto, so if someone like me is having a hard time figuring this out, then we're completely fucked for "mass" adoption.  People are always like "we need to tell our friends and family to get in on this" but this whole shit show is a perfect example of why I am not "spreading the good word," so to speak.

please don't anyone take offense from my ranting, i am just extremely frustrated and need to vent.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Crypto generally is in no way ready for prime time use or adoption. Yes, you can make it work, but for the "average Joe" right now I just don't see it.

Realistically android/i device and other mobile wallets are much easier to understand and adopt.

Providing a .conf file ready to download with short explanation where to put it on the website maybe no problem?


I grabbed 0.10 client peers from the Chainz explorer and put them into a sample Unobtanium.conf file.

You can download the Unobtanium.conf file from Unobtanium.uno.  Choose whether you want the .conf (text) or .zip file, and download it to your desktop.
http://unobtanium.uno/download/Unobtanium.conf

http://unobtanium.uno/download/Unobtanium.conf.zip

Edit this file with any text editor, taking care that it is saved as a .conf file, and not renamed to a .txt file.
Change the Username and Password. The rest you can leave as it is.

Before proceeding, close your Uno wallet client.

Now we have to put the Unobtanium.conf file in the Unobtanium roaming data folder, where the wallet will find it.  Here's how to do that:

In MS Windows, press Windows+R to bring up the Run menu.  Type in %AppData% and then click/press Ok.  Like This....



A file folder will open.  Scroll down until you see the Unobanium folder, and then click on it.  You should now see the contents of this folder, including your wallet.dat file. Don't delete anything in this folder.

Now find your Unobtanium.conf file on your desktop, and drag it into this folder.

Restart your wallet.

You're good to go.

----

This is for Windows. Sadly, I can't tell you how to do this on Mac or Linuxs. Perhaps someone else will step up and write it. You can use the same Unobtanium.conf file for Win/Mac/Linux.


thank you so much for the detailed response.

do i just make up anything for username and password?  when is this used and for what?

The rarest and fairest...Unobtanium

I had a quick wallet question.

When we download the new Beta Windows wallet, it is in zip format.

I unzip it and there is only the QT.exe file.

Do I need to copy the QT.exe file into the directory of the "old" wallet to over-write the former QT.exe? Or, just leave it in it's own directory by itself?

Thanks!

When I downloaded it some days ago, the zip file contained only one file "unobtanium-qt_0.10beta.exe".  Since it had a different name than the old executable ("unobtanium-qt.exe"), I just dropped it in the same folder.  I then updated the shortcut which used to point to the old one.  To do this, right-click on the shortcut, Properties, and put this in the "Target" text box:

Quote
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Unobtanium\unobtanium-qt_0.10beta.exe"

Worked like a charm (the first time, it did an automatic reindex).  Everything else is still the way it was, same folders same everything.  It just has that new beta wallet executable in it, which is what I run. No uninstalling, no anything.

I downloaded the mac wallet.  its works, but is taking FOREVER to d/l the blockchain with only 1 active connection to the Unobtanium network.

I know blah blah blah addnodes unobtanium.conf file.....i have no idea what any of this means or how to do what you were going to tell me to do.  can someone tell me exactly how to make this happen?

where the hell is bryce? did he totally just bail on creating wallets for us?  I understand that he doesn't necessarily "owe" us anything but why would he make a fork happen, tell us new wallets are coming, and then just flake?  at least if he said "i'm not going to make any wallets" we could have figured this out on time ourselves.  meanwhile he's flapping his gums to anyone who'll listen about how Unobtanium is "his" coin and implying its so great because of him.

Bryce, I think i'd rather have Bill Buckner on my team in a clutch moment than you.

I'll try to put in some hardcode node for the OSX build next time.

BTW, we might have 2 flavor of UNO android wallet, there is one I have been working on since months ago, Unobtaniumj need some rework for MM but it seems HashEngineering's version should do it https://github.com/HashEngineering/unobtaniumj/commits?author=HashEngineering

I am quite busy with work and everything so don't count on me release it anytime soon.

Cheers!

If you are going to mine Bitcoin, why wouldn't you choose a merge pool? They can either afford to have lower fees or higher payouts. It makes sense.
I am having fun mining at mmpool right now, enjoying my Uno dust. Smiley
Exactly! It would be nice to get BTC Guild and Slush's Pool on the $UNO train too!
Sure, more pools would be great. We'll get there.

Lets try to help Xpool get up and running first, though.

Uno is about to lose it's support from Xpool because of a crashing daemon.  I'm not able to resolve it. They compile the daemon but after a few hours it crashes. Bryce thought maybe they needed to update pre-reqs to bitcoin 0.1, but that answer didn't sem to help.

If you can help, please head over to Cryptocointalk and assist Cracker.

Thanks,

He needs to post some error logs or something before anyone can even begin to diagnose the problem.
