After having somewhat resolved my previous issue (how to restore a keychain on another machine) I went on with a fresh install of Blockstack on a new Ubuntu 16.4 system.
I first installed Chromium and made it the default browser since this is not done automatically by the Ubuntu install.
I then installed Docker using the installation script provided on the Docker site.
I also added my user id to the docker group as recommended by Docker.
Then I went on to install Blockstack:
- downloaded the Blockstack-for-Linux-v0.23.0.sh from Blockstack’s site
- gave it the execution permissions
- ran ./Blockstack-for-Linux-v0.23.0.sh pull without any error message
- and finally ran ./Blockstack-for-Linux-v0.23.0.sh start
It seemed to run properly in the CLI, but then, to my surprise, launched the blockstack-browser in Firefox instead of Chromium (which is the default browser) It asked me to setup the browser which I did by restoring my existing keychain. This went OK, since it was able o retrieve the info I had saved in a previous Linux install.
However, the helloblockstack app doesn’t let me sign-in: it hangs when trying to get my ID
Curiously enough, when going back to the terminal in which I launched the container, the process was still busy and I wasn’t receiving the prompt. When I closed the Firefox window, that launch process crashed ad went back at the prompt. The docker container was apparently still running since a restart told me it had to stop it first.
In case, you wonder, when I type the command/
it opens properly in Chromium as expected
Same thing if I prefix it with bash -c
How can I get the blockstack-browser to launch in Chromium?
Why is the helloblockstack app not able to find out my ID?
