When I go into the terminal and type:

cd chia-blockchain-gui

I get this message:

bash: cd: chia-blockchain-gui: No such file or directory`

But when I type:

cd chia-blockchain

it works perfectly fine. So my next step was to try reinstall the GUI, but when I did that, this happened:

jj@shut-up-mike:~$ chmod +x .install-gui.sh
chmod: cannot access '.install-gui.sh': No such file or directory" 

Here is a link to the GitHub I am using to install this: https://github.com/Chia-Network/chia-blockchain/wiki/INSTALL#ubuntudebian

I must add two really important comments:

  1. I have only been using Linux for 3 days.
  2. I did have the GUI running fine until I closed the terminal by exiting out of it.

    Note that .install-gui.sh is not the same thing as ./install-gui.sh – steeldriver Apr 24 at 13:10
  • first you try to cd into an app then you cd into a directory in the next step you try to run a command that is not in that directory. Where did you put the stuff you downloaded? – David Apr 24 at 13:11

    .install-gui.sh refers to a (hidden) file named .install-gui.sh whereas ./install-gui.sh refers to a file named install-gui.sh in the current directory, ./ – steeldriver Apr 24 at 15:49


cd /home/your_user_name/chia-blockchain && . ./activate && cd chia-blockchain-gui && npm run electron &
