I get this error when i try to open my wallet:

$ ./monero-wallet-cli --wallet-file home/samuel/wallet/wallet2
Monero 'Wolfram Warptangent' (v0.10.2.0-38b9226)
Logging to ./monero-wallet-cli.log
Wallet password: *****************
Error: failed to load wallet: file not found "home/samuel/wallet/wallet2.keys

What am I doing wrong here? Thanks for the help!

Absolute paths in linux start with /. So it seems you are missing /in your path. It should be /home/samuel/wallet/wallet2


Seems like you're missing an /


./monero-wallet-cli --wallet-file /home/samuel/wallet/wallet2

You can also use ~ instead of your home dir:

./monero-wallet-cli --wallet-file ~/wallet/wallet2
