I've downloaded and installed clients for Ring both in my laptop, using the
Debian Stretch OS, and in my tablet, using the Android-based Lineage OS. I
would like to use the same account on both devices, so I tried to create an
account in one device and then generating a PIN code to link the other device
to it as well. But I wasn't able to do that.
By creating an account in Debian, it would show up under Settings -> Accounts
as “Enabled” but “Not Registered” and attempting to generate a PIN code would
lead to a loading screen where it reads “Exporting account on the Ring...”; and
it would just stay there indefinitely. Creating the account from Lineage to
then export the PIN code from there also does not work, it gets stuck in its
own loading screen where it reads “Please wait. Publishing new account
Also, I've made a few attempts with different settings, using the IDs
“thoreau”, “paine” and “chomsky”. At each new attempt, I failed to recover or
delete the previous account from the Blockchain. So the former account ID names
are no longer accessible even to me, as they all count as being “taken”. Which
is a waste, as noteworthy figures in anarchist literature are scarce.
Hence, I'm getting in contact with you guys. If you could kindly give me some
advice to troubleshoot this or point me out so some help page, I would be most
thankful. This is a nice piece of software with even nicer set of principles
I wish you the best.
