@Hueristic. I am waiting for the dump but so far all I see is a pump. I missed it. Sad

By they way, how did Monero become accepted in Alphabay and what does it take for the other darknet sites to follow them? Is it their decision or does the community have to make it known to them that XMR is a good choice too?

I was making a joke actually. Smiley For all we know they were the ones keeping the price suppressed lately. AFA them adopting XMR it looks like that was a choice they made as it fit their business model. I'd assume eventually all markets should accept XMR dark or otherwise. Whats the reason not to?

Currently, the GUI is useless in signing transactions offline due to a known and open window-scaling issue in some devices with smaller/lower-res screen (at least for me anyway) wherein the "Advanced Options" buttons at the bottom are cut off and inaccessible (specifically the "Sign tx file" button).

Until scaling is fixed I found this way to launch gui helpful:
QT_SCALE_FACTOR=0.8 ./start-gui.sh

Thanks for the tip. Where and how do I apply this string in Linux?

If you don't know how to set an environment variable on Windows, see this guide:

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/2928/how-to-change-the-monero-wallet-gui-rendering-mode-for-older-computers

Obviously, you have to replace QMLSCENE_DEVICE=softwarecontext with QT_SCALE_FACTOR=0.8, as this guide was written for another purpose.

This didn't seem to have any effect at all. Thanks anyway.

For those who haven't noticed yet, rehrar has revamped the official website:

https://getmonero.org/

Very nice. However, I still don't see installation instructions especially in Linux (I had to watch an old youtube video to learn how to go about it the hard way). BTW, how do I create a shortcut for "start-gui.sh" on the Linux Mint 18.2 desktop? Pardon the noob question as I am Linux-averse due to CLI phobia but I'm trying to learn though.



[1] It's up to community members to write documentation and add it to the website.

[2] See -> https://askubuntu.com/questions/450266/an-easy-way-to-create-a-desktop-shortcut.


[2] Wow! One has to jump through all those hoops just to create a simple shortcut on the desktop in Linux . I'll stick to launching it directly Grin. We can bash Windoze all we want but this is just one of the many reasons why it's more popular and has a mainstream adoption instead of just a niche OS. Thanks though.

It's supposed to be fixed in the next release but in the meantime, what are the steps to sign transactions offline using CLI (reluctantly due to CLI phobia but I'm left with no choice).


See:

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/2868/is-there-any-way-to-construct-a-transaction-manually/2916

To create a view wallet, one has to add the --generate-from-view-key <view-wallet-name> flag.

On Windows make sure to launch it from the command line. Go to the folder monero-wallet-cli is located and make sure your cursor isn't located on any of the files. Subsequently do SHIFT + right click and it will give you an option to "Open command window here". Lastly, type the following command:

Code:
monero-wallet-cli --generate-from-view-key <view-wallet-name>

On Linux and Mac OS X you should use the terminal to launch monero-wallet-cli. Note that this has to be done from the directory monero-wallet-cli is located in. The command is as follows:

Code:
./monero-wallet-cli --generate-from-view-key <view-wallet-name>


I'm already good with creating an unsigned transaction with the online view-only wallet in GUI which runs on a desktop with a rather large monitor (not affected by the scaling issue). I just need to know the specific CLI strings/args to sign the transaction with the cold wallet on the offline device using CLI (and subsequently export it back to the online GUI wallet for broadcasting) since my offline GUI is unusable due the the aforementioned scaling issue. Thanks!

You can still use the guide I linked. For every step that uses the "watch wallet" you use the GUI, whereas for every step that uses the "cold wallet" you use the CLI. For example, step 1 of the guide is as follows:

Quote
Using watch wallet, export_outputs to a file*.

Thus, for this step you use the GUI.

Anoter example, step 3 is as follows:

Quote
Using cold wallet, import_outputs from the file*.

Thus, for this step you use the CLI.

I see. Perhaps my eyes and brain just got tired after desperately cramming for a solution. I'll check it out again.

Open the terminal from the directory of `monero-wallet-gui` (`start-gui.sh` is in the same directory). Subsequently type aforementioned command.

Got it! Thank you.

However, I just found out that on Linux Mint 18~, pressing ALT and clicking anywhere on a window (and not just on the title bar at the top) allows dragging it around beyond the screen/monitor boundary, thereby making it possible to then manually scale/increase the GUI window size with the arrow on the bottom right corner and reveal the cut off Advanced Options buttons. Very cool feature and a painless and an effective solution to the scaling issue. I only wish Windows has such flexibility so I don't have to deal with Linux.

That said, I'm surmising that cross-platform transaction signing (i.e. generating an unsigned tx on Windows and consequently signing it on Linux) shouldn't be a problem, right?

No, the files should be portable across different operating systems.

for you sending to your wallet it is optional. 

it is necessary when sending to polo because they have one address and they the payment id is how they know whose deposit is whose.

bottom line is PID is used when you need to distinguish deposits from from multiple sources that are sent to a wallet.

Is Alphabay the only darknet website that accepts Monero as of today? I heard that they are now down and that they might have exited the market, stealing all their users funds. What happens now?

I heard that Wall Street Market is now working with XMR.  That would make it the third DNM to add XMR.  DNMs really need to decentralize.  Hansa is a step in the right direction, and seems to be getting most of the AB diaspora ATM.

DNMs really need to decentralize *AND* stop sending/receiving coins that are not named Monero.  Wink

BTC is okay for internal (IE mulitsig'd escrow) use, but not acceptable for funds entering and exiting the system; inputs and outputs must be sanitized to minimize metadata leakage.

I hope the Judge doubles the AB operators' sentences for being so egregiously and obnoxiously stupid as to add Zooko-cash and Vitalik-coin.  Cheesy

To all DNM devs reading this:

Unless you want to join Ross in a 'don't-drop-the-soap' government rape camp, stop putting yourselves and your users at risk with radically transparent Bitcoin and Bitcoin-based crypto.  XMR has a splendid GUI and Android app is in alpha, so there are no more 'but muh learning curve/zomg icky CLI' excuses.

If drug-addled junkies, hippies, and ravers can figure out how to use Bitcoin they can damn well spend another couple of hours getting to know Monero.

Yes there are several in the works and some might even be ready soon Grin

You can also use the GUI with a remote public node.  Public nodes can only handle a certain amount of traffic and you give up some privacy.  It also obviously doesn't support the network.  I keep a node running all the time as it uses minimal computer resorces and I have unlimited data.

There is currently work being done to reduce the amount of data and bandwidth a node uses.

I heard that Wall Street Market is now working with XMR.  That would make it the third DNM to add XMR.  DNMs really need to decentralize.  Hansa is a step in the right direction, and seems to be getting most of the AB diaspora ATM.
I heard about another black market during last year Monero pump, but  I can not recall its name and tell if it still works; you should look for Monero news from August 2016.
