Mint Ordinals with Umbrel

Hi guys,

I’m attempting to Connect the Ord wallet to the Umbrel bitcoind via command prompts on terminal.

There doesn’t seem to be much documentation on command prompts for Umbrel. For example when I ssh into umbrel, login, then attempt to pull bitcoin logs. I get “bitcoin doesn’t exist”

Any one know of a quick easy way to do this? Has anyone inscribed using their Umbrel Bitcoin node?

You can not run commands directly because on Umbrel every service runs in a docker container.

This means Bitcoin Core and the Bitcoin CLI are running in a container as well. If you want to execute a command you have to this in the container.

Which looks like this:

docker exec container command

usually the bitcoin container name is “bitcoin_bitcoind_1”

But to make sure can get a list of all containers and the container configuration with

docker container ls

as command you type the normal command you want to execute

For example:

If you want to get the Blockhash of the Genesis block you have to type the following:

docker exec bitcoin_bitcoind_1 bitcoin-cli getblockhash 0
