Hello so yesterday I tyried to install Armory, a bitcoin desktop wallet, to house my bitcoins. I am doing this for the sake of undertsanding bitcoins a little more and I do not plan to put large quantities in it as of right now, I am not that stupid. Anyways so I installed armory in ubuntu 16.04 and soon realized that I needed bitcoin core to communicate to the block chain. Fair enough, so I went to youtube.com and rather than doing the simnple PPA methods I found I wanted to compile it myself because I prefer not to truat 3rd parties. I am not Julian Assange but where I can I prefer to not leave dependencies on corporations.
Anyway I followed this YouTube video and I have Armory already installed:
The YouTube link is in the first imagur link because I am a nub and can only post 2 links, it will be at the bottem of the 3 pictures
Here is the issue:
When I go to open Armory to play around it first gave me an error saying I needed to go to config to enable rcp. Below is in sequencial order of how that error occured, my cursor is where I clicked: http://imgur.com/a/boKsR
So it was late and I just went to bed. But then today I load into Ubuntu and it does this: http://imgur.com/a/StZIH
It has been 30+ minutes and it still has not connected. Any thoughts? I am going to post a picture of the RPC error in a few minutes. If any other logs are needed ask, thanks :)
