Error: Could not load z9 key (SOLVED)

I am getting the error below when trying to run the app, I triple checked zcash.conf and it looks good. Could someone please lend a hand?

EXCEPTION: St13runtime_error
could not load param file at /home/fible1/.zcash-params/z9-verifying.key
Zcash in AppInit()


Did you run the script to fetch the proving keys? If you build from source, it’ll be ./src/zcutil/ and if you installed from binaries just run zcash-fetch-params

Thank you for getting back. I actually found an old forum post about trying with a fresh terminal and that did the trick strangely enough. Good to go now, thank you for taking the time to answer my question :).


No problem! I’m a volunteer here, but even though I’m not an employee of ZcashCo I do make my living with all kinds of things Zcash related, and helping out beginners is essential to any open source community
