I am running xtogo gui on ubuntu vps. The blockchain has synced. However, when I try to deploy a contract, the window says that the gas cannot be computed, because the account needs at least 1 eth. The account has 1 eth. So, I need to back out and try something else. However, "quit ethereum wallet" or Control+O have no affect. I do not want to try killall process, as the db may become corrupted.

I used:

ps ax | grep Etereum-Wallet

Which output:

4012 pts/0 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto Ethereum-Wallet

Then I killed it with:

pkill Ethereum-Wallet

When I restarted with parity-geth and then reloaded the Ethereum Wallet, the blockchain was still synced. So, I don't really like this as it takes so long to download the chain. I am still paranoid that the db may become corrupted with this method. I lost the db earlier by shutting down and restarting, so try at your own risk!

  • I found later, that the x2go client was failing to show the updated window, that showed the Ethereum Wallet. Upon restarting the client, the window, no longer appeared.
