Hello, I'm new to Electrum. Trying to find something more secure than an online wallet with all the thefts going on lately... Electrum seems like a good choice and I can use it on my Ubuntu computer as well as my Android phone.

My problem, as stated in the title, is that on my Ubuntu installation, I don't have any Receive addresses. What's up with that?

New install, and entered seed and now no receiving address?

There is a plus next to receive - should be 5 addresses there by default.

I think that if the client never connects or drops the connection attempt it doesn't show the receiving address. Try switching servers in the Network window (red/green dot)

Well, there's no "plus" next to receive.

I installed Electrum, ran it and created a new wallet when prompted. In the receive tab, there are the headings "Address, Label, Balance, Tx".

I closed Electrum, deleted the wallet (nothing in it), restarted and created another new wallet. Now there are 5 receiving addresses (and 3 change). Still no "plus" though. Should it be there?

It shows up as a down arrow on Linux. When you click it the addresses collapse under the receiving heading. Click it again to show the addresses.
