I have read all over the internet the past 2 days and i still can not get Mist to work with a geth private chain

I am running

geth --dev

then opening mist and getting this error

enter image description here

I have read the geth documentation about what all the flags do. i have tried doing this with multiple flags but still cannot get it to connect

  • When you run geth --dev it will show something like IPC endpoint opened: /data/ethereum/geth.ipc. You launch mist with ./mist --rpc /data/ethereum/geth.ipc.

Try using below,

"geth.exe --dev --datadir "filename" --ipcpath geth.ipc console"

As dev is ephemeral private net, everything will be erased if datadir flag is not used.
