I am running Ubuntu 11.10 on an eee pc (6 months old). I am a newbie to linux so please give me advice as if it was to your grandmother : ).
I Installed bitcoin today using https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=53791.0
(Thanks for that)
once installed bitcoin i went to the 'dash home' load bitcoin and it says loading addresses then dissapears
I have uninstalled bitcoin and reinstalled three times.
I have deleted the addr.dat file in .bitcoin folder
I have restarted several times
I have left it for a while
In the file I initially downloaded from bitcoin.org the read me file (down at the bottom) said there was a problem with one of the qt programs for the screen so i turned that off(uninstalled)
I have searched around this forum and others + google and can't seem to find an answer
Thanks for your assistance in advance
