    I think I may have worked out why nothing is working … I had loaded linux lite and not (Ubuntu linux) just downloading it now and I'll try to set miner up again and see how it goes as it just keeps coming up with error msg and unable to find files, access denied and many more will let you know what happens once I put Ubuntu linux on the miner cheers

    bro, I looked thru these comments and me including everyone here, when we try to install ethminer it say unable to locate package. I'm not new to Linux either, this means there is a missing step. you left something out that you might have done a while before recording this video

    Minergate always says that I am offline, even though the program is running on my computer and my good shares number increases… why is this? It will sometimes blink green for a second and then stop. What is happening?
