Help?

BTChip and Ledger Nano, the plugin supplied by Electrum is not enough, you also have to install the necessary libraries from Github: e.g. /LedgerHQ/btchip-python, /trezor/cython-hidapi and pyusb. Follow the install instructions in each repo

Will this setup be easier with the actual version 2.1.1?

Did anyone try it with windows and can give an instruction?

  • Open Electrum.
  • Choose 'Create new wallet'.
  • Choose 'Hardware wallet' in 'Wallet type'.
  • Choose 'BTChip wallet'.
  • Go through the process and you are done!

Good luck! Smiley

P.S. Store your seed safely.

Thank you for your answer. That's what i tried, but electrum just disappeared like gentarkin told.
Unfortunately I'm a totally phyton noob, but I'll try now to install the libs.

I share your frustration. Same problem on windows. No problem on linux

Indeed. Windows in not at all good for developers.

If you know how to find dependencies and how to install a Python module, I highly recommend you to compile Electrum yourself. I compiled Electrum myself and it is working fine for me now. You will get some errors and may get stuck too. I also got stuck a few times. But it will be solved if you post here.
