Daedalus 2.1.0 on Linux?

Hello, is anyone running a Daedalus Shelly Wallet on Linux? I followed the instructions found in the following link:

[https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/900000776446-Installing-Daedalus-1-1-0-Mainnet-on-Linux-] (Installing Daedalus Mainnet on Linux)

Everything seems to install ok, but I can’t find the “daedalus-mainnet” anywhere in any directory. I do have a /.local/bin folder but it is not there. The directions mention to click on the icon but nothing shows up anywhere that I can see.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I have installed and I run Daedalus 2.1.0 on Linux and the .local/bin/daedalus-mainnet shell script exists and works as expected.

Are you sure there was not error when you installed it?

The only error I saw was about a nix group that did not exist. Should I post the output of the install?

Stick it in a pastebin or something rather than posting here in the forum.

Are you sure you dont run setup as root/sudo?

Regardless based on the hint of description, you’d prolly need to create /etc/nix folder and follow instructions here

This wouldnt be needed normally, but often most that use root to install (maybe once before) fall into this issue

Whenever I open a terminal window I always type sudo su - so I don’t have to keep typing sudo on every command.

Should I try installing without typing that command?

Thanks rdirt! That seemed to work better. I didn’t see the nix error in the install output and now I have an icon to click on.

NEW PROBLEM: Nothing happens : Now when I click on the icon nothing happens except the usual zoom animation that signifies a program is opening. If I go to the /home/.local/bin folder in terminal and try to run it from there it says

[launcher:Notice:27] [2020-08-15 16:03:08.82 UTC] Locking file so that multiple applications won’t run at same time
cardano-launcher: Daedalus application is already running. There cannot be two applications running at the same time. Please close one application before starting another instance.

Essentially, there is already an instance running. I just rebooted. How can there be an instance already running?

I don’t know this forum very well. What is the pastebin and how do I use it?

I am running Daedalus wallet on Ubuntu 20.04…works just fine.

No, you should not type sudo before or during the installation. Just download the latest version from here https://daedaluswallet.io/en/download/

Then change the file permission to make it executable. You can do it from GUI or from the terminal:

chmod +x <filename>

After that just execute the file ./<filename>

Let us know if you are still facing issues.

Thank you for the reply SaadZoul.

I did as you instructed. It dumps out to an error that I posted above.
The current status of my problem is that it says more than one instance of the Daedalus wallet is running even after rebooting and running the daedalus-mainnet is the only thing I do.

What is the output of the following two commands:

ps auwx | grep daedalus
ps auwx | grep cardano

Try to install nix first. I have same problem at first time. But, after install nix. It’s work like a charm

The wallet installer already installs Nix, so installing Nix separately is unlikely to help.

“Just install NIx” is also not a good response until we know exactly what is causing the problem.

Hi, sorry my bad, because when I install Daedalus in Centos, I got some error too, then I install nix, after that it works.

That suggests its not already running on your machine.
