Fucking bullshit python.
I need to rewrite entire electroneum GUI wallet because PySide on arch linux dont have support for qtwebkit and well im kinda stuck here.
I may use the android electroneum wallet but well Private key is not on my phone so sorry but i will not use that and well i could use CLI wallet but this may sound weird for Arch guy but i like GUI in wallets.

    I'd say it would be weird if you liked CLI wallets.

    Anyhow, wouldn't it just easier to use a Debian based system instead of rewriting the front end of the app?

    @Froot Well i dont like debian based systems at all and i love arch so yeah it would be easier to rewrite the wallet or maybe i can just downgrade libreadline to version 6 but dont know what will break

    Build your own webkit

    @iSwimInTheC I may be crazy in tech but man im not that kind of person to build my own webkit and if you mean to build it from source and just compile it well actually done that 2 hours ago and no luck probably because i suck at python

    Man, why would you even bother with ETN? It's just a shitty clone of Monero

    @endor I was mining monero for over a month now and made 10 cents while i just started mining electroneum and will make about 1 eth per day so i think its lot better and also you can exchange it faster because the minimum payout on pools is a lot lower then monero

    @wolt Yeah well if this wallet was based at pyqt4 i would be happy but well sadly its based on Pyside and i cannot fucking found any way to build a qtweb into it if you have found any way let me know please for now im stuck with paper wallet generated offline

    You could just use a docker container? The app would be a little heavier, but it would really really the leg work out.

    That way you wouldn't have to give up what you love just for one feature in an app.

    @MadScientist Damn man i never heard of docker (That may sound stupid) but really never heard of it but well i like it will do so.
    also here is ++bomb for this great tip

    @Haxk20 there are plenty of pools with 0.1 xmr payouts and low fees.
    And you would be supporting a worthy project too, rather than some random dickhead who clicked the "Fork" button on github and replaced every occurence of 'Monero' with 'Electroneum'

    @endor Yeah well 0.1XMR is 25 Euro well i cant even mine that in 1 month and im not running my PC as miner 24/7 but my Rpizero is running 24/7/356 but Rpi can make 0.05ETN per day and with PC mining 4 hours a day im making 10ETH pretty close to 20days and i can payout that so its better for me.
    Yeah i agree that you should support the project that you like but well i run Rpi 24/7/356 and free electrocity for Rpi (Running Solar) and im running Pi-hole on it so making few cents on it isnt that bad.

    @Haxk20 just spare that RPi's life then, it's not worth it.
    15 ETN/month means ~1.5$/month if you're lucky. It's gonna take you over 3 years to get the amount you've paid for it, maybe even 4. Your Pi will be long fried and dead by then, and you won't get anything worthwhile in return.

    If you really gotta mine, find the first cheapo cpu you can get your hands on and use that, it will be a far better investment

    @endor Yes im going to do that definetly but for now i just want to test with Rpi to see which one is best and then add my mining setup to it.

    Just FYI, you may want to consider doing Python dev in some kind of container so it's distro agnostic and you don't have to dick up standard libraries your distro and packages might be relying on elsewhere. virtualenv is better than nothing imo.

    @endor even that cheap PC will be useless... You need a rack of ARM processor arrays designed specifically for mining to even BEGIN to get there.

    @agaskins nah, I can tell you from experience that you don't. I started mining on my laptop occasionally one year ago, and I've been doing alright since. You just have to know what you're doing.

    That said, there are a few ARM processors that would do mining pretty efficiently, but setting up the infrastructure around them is kind of a pain in the ass and not cheap.
