Questions and Answers : Getting started : nothing happens
Installed on ubuntu 16.04, nothing happens. Right after installing it might have been working 'better' but when i closed it it stayed in the task switcher alt-tab and wouldn't stay in the background, seems unacceptable to me so i killed it for a while. After re-start: BOINC Manager says "Unable to connect to the core client". Everything but Help and Notices buttons are greyed out. Clicking Notices opens empty window. Help goes to "https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Simple_view"

When you killed it, you killed the client. Then when you started it again, only the Manager started.
I removed boinc-client from the list of programs that automagically start on my Ubuntu18.04 laptop because it stopped the windows one starting under Wine.
boinc client then didn't start when I started the manager.
Running the following command before or after starting the Linux Boinc Manager enabled all to work normally.
sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client start^C
However as no work under Linux from CPDN. I am just running the windows version at present.
