Daedalus stuck on Linux - how to access coins




First of all, hello everybody! I am new in here and would love to join the wonderful community of Cardano.

Sadly, I am having an issue with accessing my coins. I am using the linux version of Daedalus (still in beta, I know) and I don’t have any machine with non-linux operating system. Recently I start having an issue with Daedalus being stuck at cca 99.23% when syncing blockchain. This value stays there for hours without moving (it just moves down since the blockchain grows, obviously).

I know that there are some tricks how to fix this on Windows (deleting some tmp directory and syncing again). Is there something like this available for Linux?

I also tried using my 12-word passphrase to recover the wallet in Yoroi but it only says it is invalid (Yoroi and Daedalus passphrases are not compatible, it seems). So my question is, what should I do to access my coins?


There was a patch released recently that causes previous versions of Daedalus to stop syncing:

I’m not sure what the status of the Linux version is, but you could try making sure it’s updated to the latest version and see if that fixes the issue.

You can’t put your 12 word Daedalus phrase straight into Yoroi. You need to create a new Yoroi wallet with a 15 word phrase, then click the Daedalus logo at the top right of Yoroi and choose to import the funds from Daedalus. This transfers all the ADA out of your Daedalus wallet into your new Yoroi wallet.
Edit: Here’s a video on how to import Daedalus to Yoroi


Thanks for the reply. I don’t think there is an update for Linux, yet. They might release official Linux version of Daedalus in December so I could either wait or use Yoroi instead.
