I've just installed electrum on a new computer and I want to restore my wallet from my old computer.

When I load up electrum I select "Restore an existing wallet from its seed" and instead of asking me for the seed it loads the same window again asking me what I want to do. If I again select "Restore an existing wallet from its seed" it opens a window that says "Error! No Seed" and then closes electrum.

I'm running electrum on Ubuntu 14.10. I've tried installing it both through apt-get and pip with all the necessary dependencies. Anyone have any idea why I'm encountering this error?

UPDATE: the error seems to be related to a bug in 1.9.8 as documented here: https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/issues/919.

The suggestion is using gtk interface or downgrading PyQt4 to 4.10.4. I don't know how to do either of those things though, can anyone help me out?

You can use the command line to restore the wallet:

Code:
electrum restore

For documentation type:

Code:
electrum help #all commands
electrum help restore #command specific help
