I installed Bitcoin Core version v0.11.2.0-g7e27892 (64-bit) at /usr/bin/bitcoin-qt.

After that I installed armory 0.93.3-beta-e59e10d38c.

When I launch armory it says "cannot find bitcoin installation". I go to File > Settings and set "Bitcoin install dir" to /usr/bin.

Yet armory keeps repeating that msg. Is it a bug?

I’m running Ubuntu 14.04 64bit.

  • Have you tried setting the "Bitcoin install dir" to /usr/bin/bitcoin-qt?

  • I mean, in armory? Because you wrote you set it to /usr/bin instead.

you need to copy both "bitcoin-qt" and "bitcoind" files into the installation directory and make them executable (chmod 755 bitcoin*) then try installing in armory. check this link: armory FAQ


You should probably install bitcoind as well

sudo apt-get install bitcoind

Here you can find more details

  • You should probably elaborate on this answer a bit more. It helps to explain why this solution works, especially when there are different answers already posted.
