Boinc Manager 404’s with World Community Grid (Ubuntu Precise)

Applying what Sekerob said on the WCG forums seemed to work for me:

  1. Quit Boinc Manager and kill it if necessary (step #3 fails if BM’s running)
  2. Pick the Weak Account Key from your WCG Profile page
  3. Run `boinccmd –project_attach your_weak_account_key`

You should now see WCG when you open Boinc Manager again, and be able to fetch work.
