Offline Installation of Armory on Tails and Ubuntu Linux ...
HOWTO: Run a Full Bitcoin Node + Armory : Bitcoin
[Guide] Setting up Trezor + Electrum 2.02beta + armory on a Raspberry Pi 2. Cold offline signing for $40
Having just received my Pi 2, I am happy to report that a fresh Raspbian install, on an 8 GB Class 10 MicroSD card : Electrum / Armory / Trezor / BTChip all work with my Single Board Computer setup script (it also works for Pi B, Pi B+ Raspbian and BeagleBone Black Debian & ubuntu, also tested on Odroid C1 Ubuntu 14.4) The full "!" installation takes about 40 mins on Pi 2, which is at least twice as fast as on the Pi B+ / BBB Notes
on the first run of raspbian, choose the first raspi-config option, "Expand root partition to fill SD card", and then reboot. You should see >2.9Gb free space and >7Gb total space in PCManFM. Edit: Use the Odroid desktop tool to expand the partition also. Edit 2: on odroid and raspbian you need to expand and reboot twice to take effect.
for my btchip HW-1 to work with python/electrum 2.02b I needed to run ./btchip-c-api/bin/btchip_setTransportHID and power cycle
armory 0.92.3-beta works on Pi 2, despite being built for the ARM6
btchip HW-1 HID keyboard seed replay requires > 1.4.13 firmware to avoid clipping on Pi B/B+/BBB. No issue on Pi 2.
unfortunately wheezy raspbian's Chromium is still at v22, which was due to ARM6. Hopefully a newer ARM7 Chromium will be added to the distro.
on Jesse raspbian apt-get chromium / chromium-browser is completely broken
BBB Debian is limited to Chromium 37, enough to run Greenaddress (WinHID mode)
BBB Ubuntu 14 runs Chromium 40, with some screen glitching.
raspistill -o scan.jpg plus picamera plus qtqr works well. Maybe I'll add Wolfram qr decoding to a future update.
ODROID C1 has arrived and partially works. Using the latest Feb Ubuntu 14.04 distro, Trezor / btchip / electrum 2.02b / Chromium 40 Greenaddress mostly work. I'm doing some troubleshooting with Nicolas - I had to git clone https://github.com/walac/pyusb.git, despite having pip installed pyusb already, and needed to alternate between ./btchip_setTransportHID and ./btchip_setTransportWinUSB for electrum and greenaddress.
Armory's Raspberry Pi 0.92 offline bundle releases work on BBB Ubuntu and Pi B/B+/2 Raspbian wheezy.
Estimated total time: Up to 2 hours, not including blockchain downloading. You can install this on a VPS, a spare PC, or on your own PC. You can install it in Virtualbox on your own PC, or into Windows. If you just want to try it out, I recommend installing in Virtualbox.
After installing Ubuntu in Virtualbox, to make it fullscreen you will need Guest Additions. Run these commands by clicking on the swirl icon top right, typing ter and opening Terminal: sudo apt-get install build-essentials module-assistant and then sudo m-a prepare Before selecting Devices > Insert Guest Additions CD image, telling Ubuntu to install them, and shutting down. //Thanks go to http://www.binarytides.com/vbox-guest-additions-ubuntu-14-04 for those instructions.//
Next I went into the Virtual Machines settings and changed Network Adapter 1 to be "Attached to Bridged Network" instead of "Attached to NAT".
After booting the machine back up, I followed the steps here: https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node/#linux-instructions And installed both bitcoin-qt and bitcoind. Skip over the parts where you edit bitcoin-qt's settings to start at boot, or edit cron to start bitcoind at boot, since this will interfere with using armory.
I then started up Armory in Offline Mode by clicking on the swirl icon top left and typing Armory. In the program, after clicking Skip, I scrolled down slightly, clicked on Download Bitcoin, Download, and agreed to let it do whatever it wanted to; (which was download and install Satoshi).
I then closed Armory Offline and opened Armory, which began downloading the blockchain from a torrent. I then went into File > Settings (top left of your screen, near the swirl; menu options will appear once the mouse hits that taskbar) and personally chose to Disable OS and version reporting. There is a setting here for "Enable settings for proxies/Tor" but I haven't ticked it yet, since I haven't set Tor up.
Should I add a user to run bitcoin as, and should that user be on the sudoers list or not (this is the list of users that can type sudo and then after authenticating run most commands an administrator account can).
Will Armory or bitcoind start on boot? Do I need to login for this to happen? I know I missed the above steps in bitnodes guide regarding starting up bitcoin-qt or bitcoind on boot, this was because it seemed to prevent me from opening Armory (it would report bitcoin-qt or bitcoind were already running).
How can I broadcast transactions over Tor.
If I want to broadcast transactions over Tor, but not receive incoming connections over Tor, is that a problem for the health of the Bitcoin Tor network? Or will those transactions be broadcast out to "clearnet" nodes, as opposed to hidden ones?
What tweaks can I make to bitcoin.conf? I don't even know how to tweak it, I'd like to provide some connection slots to testnet if I'm not already. Since I'm using armory I don't know if it'll be bitcoind or armory will need configuring (I think it's bitcoind).
Thanks to all writers of articles referenced here for your help. By the way, even if you don't want to run a bitcoin node full time, I've read that running one even 6 hours a day is useful. These are instructions for ubuntu but you can also run it from Windows on the same machine you work on (I don't know about privacy implications). Perhaps someone should write an article about running a bitcoin node on your PC at work!
looking for thoughts. Installed Armory on an Ubuntu 12.04 desktop, created an encrypted wallet, and have the bitcoin data syncing. I would like to dabble in mining as part of a group (suggestions welcome! ). Is it considered bad practice to use the machine your wallet is on for mining?
Although Ubuntu carries Bitcoin Core in the Software Center, the release tends to be out-of-date. For this reason, this tutorial won’t use the Software Center. Compilation from source offers one alternative, but involves many steps. A more direct route is to install a precompiled binary from the command line. Searching for the Terminal application. The method described here uses Terminal, an ... When I launched Armory, the Initializing Bitcoin Engine seemed to be stuck. So I checked into the logfiles to see if something was happening. There seemed to be only some URLs that it wasn’t able to access and I read at reddit that it does take long and better to just wait.

Hello so yesterday I tyried to install Armory, a bitcoin desktop wallet, to house my bitcoins.
