How to UnInstall?

  • !!!WARNING!!! backup data folder before uninstalling snap

    if you uninstall, your datafolder ~/snap/obsr/common/.obsr will be deleted.

    Please make always a backup of your folder ~/snap/obsr/common/.obsr before you uninstall obsr snap.

    to uninstall, run: sudo snap remove obsr.

Where is OBSR snap's default datafolder?

Default data folder for snap builds is located at ~/snap/obsr/common/.obsr.

If you have never launched snap before, this folder will be created on first start.

How do I launch QT/Daemon/CLI/tx?

Launch QT from startmenu

In ubuntu, debian and other linux systems, if you have installed any desktop, then you should find 3 launchers/icons in your start menu:

  • OBSR Qt
  • OBSR Qt (Testnet)
  • OBSR Qt (Regtest)

Launch daemon/qt/cli/tx from terminal

We used a dot (.) insted of a hyphen (-) to run obsr snap build:

  • for main network (you can use obsr.daemon --testnet too, but we added obsr.daemon-testnet for that, check bellow.)
    • obsr.daemon
    • obsr.cli
    • obsr.qt
  • for testnet
    • obsr.daemon-testnet
    • obsr.cli-testnet
    • obsr.qt-testnet
  • for regtest
    • obsr.daemon-regtest
    • obsr.cli-regtest
    • obsr.qt-regtest

If you want to use obsr-tx, then it would be obsr.tx.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
