Is starting the daemon the right answer and I just need to wait for this to complete or do I need to do some other troubleshooting steps?
Installed IPFS-Desktop; Windows 10
Ran IPFS-Desktop; Worked Normally
Following Along on ‘Command-line quick start’
Error: ipfs configuration file already exists!
Makes sense as I previously ran IPFS-Desktop
“ID”: “Normal Hash”,
“PublicKey”: “Normal Public Key”,
ipfs cat /ipfs/<HASH>/readme Error: merkledag: not found
Google Search, some users reported that this command wouldn’t work on their installation without running daemon.
Starting daemon works normally
ipfs cat /ipfs//readme
Process Hangs and doesn’t complete, killed the process after 2mins
ipfs cat /ipfs/QmW2WQi7j6c7UgJTarActp7tDNikE4B2qXtFCfLPdsgaTQ/cat.jpg > cat.jpg
Opening 'C:\Users\diia8\Installed Tools\cat.jpg' failed: JPEG image plug-in could not open image
Attempted deleting and pulling the file several times.
