I installed Peppermint 10 and the newest Electrum runs just fine.

17
Terminal did warn me I am not to remove Python 3.5 unless I wanna wreak havoc on myself, so I went eeny, meeny, miny, moe, pressed some keys and hey, still breathing.

What am I to do now tho?

EDIT: Oh, nothing! I'll try.  8)

Sorry.

I had attempted that, but it still left me with what I began with.

I followed these instructions:

http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2017/07/install-python-3-6-1-in-ubuntu-16-04-lts/

It seems I can still switch to Python 3.5 through

Code: [Select]
sudo update-alternatives --config python3

I swear I'll do nothing but what I'm told to do from now on  :'(

Python 3.5.2 

So I've installed Python 3.6.8 and re-run the commands again. This time, the installation got through, but it still gave me this:

Code: [Select]

You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 19.1.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

When I attempted to run the wallet, this was the outcome:

Code: [Select]
/home/al/.local/bin/electrum
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/al/.local/bin/electrum", line 359, in <module>
    d.init_gui(config, plugins)
  File "/home/al/.local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/electrum/daemon.py", line 348, in init_gui
    gui = __import__('electrum.gui.' + gui_name, fromlist=['electrum'])
  File "/home/al/.local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/electrum/gui/qt/__init__.py", line 39, in <module>
    from PyQt5.QtGui import QGuiApplication

Thank you.

Unfortunately, it once again gave me:

Code: [Select]
python3 -m pip install --user Electrum-3.3.6.tar.gz[fast]
Processing ./Electrum-3.3.6.tar.gz
    Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:

Yes yes. It doesn't do a thing. Is it possible that Electrum versions north of 3.3.0 stopped supporting Peppermint 8 (or whatever it's based on)?

Perhaps I should upgrade to 9 at least, but I like 8 much better. I would rather give up Electrum than this version.

22
Just to expound on this a little, I have tried running older versions of Electrum. They're all fine -- up until Electrum 3.3.0 -- that's where it gets buggy.

(I would be fine with older versions, it's just that blockchain sync takes ages.)

If nobody feels like digging into this, never mind. Although I used to like this wallet a lot, it's been getting on my nerves lately and I'm about to give up on it for good.

When I try to follow what the doctor orders here: https://electrum.org/#download

...and I try to run Electrum without installing, it ends up giving me this:

Code: [Select]
python3 Electrum-3.3.6/run_electrum
  File "Electrum-3.3.6/run_electrum", line 64
    sys.exit(f"Error: {str(e)}. Try 'sudo python3 -m pip install <module-name>'")
                                                                               ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

When I do the pip install, it gives me this:

Code: [Select]

Collecting Electrum-3.3.6
  Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement Electrum-3.3.6 (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for Electrum-3.3.6
You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 19.1.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

When do as said, it gives me:

Code: [Select]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pip", line 9, in <module>
    from pip import main
ImportError: cannot import name main

All in all, I cannot get Electrum to work. Is there any way to overcome this and come out on top of it all?

That... was the easy part  ;)

Here is the newby horror:

I have lost my Peppermint USB and now only have a Linux Puppy. I must have deleted Peppermint boot files because it will not start. All I get is a black screen. Can I fix a the boot from Linux Puppy?

How?

Please please please!
