My windows 10 PC died after a failed update that didn’t complete correctly and can’t be removed. With Win10 insisting on changing the software on your hardware without permission and me running nodes 24/7 I’ve decided to use Linux Mint instead.
I managed to retrieve the following from the Win10 machine before reformatting…
- The seed to my Bisq Wallet
- A current Bisq backup
- a copy of the Bisq directory
Added complications are that I don’t know what version it was, but it was updated in the last couple of months and also I have a BSQ balance which I obviously need to include in the migration.
Can anyone walk me through the process?
Congrats to get rid of Windows!!!
Just copy the data directory from the backup to [USER]/.local/share. If it does not exist create that directory (first is with a . and hidden). then copy the Bisq folder in there. Then start Bisq and all should be ok.
Thanks Manfred! Worked perfectly for everything except my BSQ balance which shows zero. My open trade and trade history is all there. Is there an additional step I need to make. I was hoping I could maybe vote tonight before the deadline but I can wait until next month if that’s not practical. I took a quick look at the new version that shows compensation request and voting functions. Is that live now or are we still using the spreadsheet for now?
P.S. I never have seen anything other than a zero BSQ balance as I only looked once with the alt d shortcut before the distribution and haven’t looked again until just now so not sure what I should be looking at. I know it will be testnet coins but will it show the correct balance that I was allocated? I have to admit I’m kind of curious
BSQ is not active on mainnet yet, only on testnet. See https://github.com/bisq-network/docs/blob/master/dao/phase-zero.adoc for more details.
You can vote at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xlXDswj3251BPCOcII-UyWlX7o7jMkfYBE-IZ5te5Ck/
Please read the doc above to understand the context, we are in a test phase where we execute the things manually which are not implemented yet.
Where do you see the compensation request and voting functions? Only with cmd+d the DAO menu opens and beside your address all should be deactivated (because under development).
Upps, I just checked and saw that the compensation request and voting tabs are not deactivated anymore. That is a bug. Please don’t do anything there, it might break your app or spend funds (fees).
"In order to clarify a few outstanding questions and finish preparing the voting spreadsheet, we’ll postpone the start of November compensation request voting until Wednesday the 6th. Thanks all."
Awesome Manfred, will do. I thought we were still using the spreadsheet but when I upgraded and say the buttons ungreyed I thought I’d check. Glad I did Thanks for the timely and great support as always.
P.S. Working on ironing out some bugs on the networking side of my Bitcoin node but as soon as I’m set I want to dedicate it’s use to Bisq as per the recent request I read. I also have a full Monero node but I doubt that will be of relevance prior to multisig implementation.
I think this counts as me contributing my first bug find!
Since we are talking about bugs, I think avocado mentioned that he could uncheck the box of single arbitrator. I checked that and it seems like a bug, you can uncheck any arbitrator (as long as it is not both), but it doesn’t save once you change the screen.
