5. Start the baker
Baking uses four processes: the node, baker, endorser, accuser
Becoming a baker comes with great power and responsibility.
First, you should open three more terminals in Ubuntu, one per process. Remember the keyboard shortcut, press Ctrl+Alt+T.
In one terminal, you run the baker.
./tezos-baker-006-PsCARTHA run with local node ~/.tezos-node ledger_mybaker
In another terminal, you run the endorser.
./tezos-endorser-006-PsCARTHA run ledger_mybaker
And finally, the accuser in another terminal.
Your node is already synchronized and running from an earlier step in this guide. However, if it is not, here is the command again.
./tezos-node run --rpc-addr 127.0.0.1:8732 --log-output tezos.log &
tail -f tezos.log
The above example is running protocol 006-PsCARTHA. In future protocols, you will update this name to reflect the future protocol's name.
Congratulations. Your baker is now ready to bake some rolls!
Since you recently registered as a baker, you need to wait 7 cycles, or about 21 days, before you have rights to start baking and endorsing. Check on your baking rights with a block explorer such as https://tzstats.com via the Bonds tab.
