Building BitsharesX on Linux Mint 17
« on: October 26, 2014, 08:31:41 PM »

These steps, modified slightly from those on github, worked seamlessly for me.  (for BitSharesX using QT wallet)

(Thanks to davidpbrown for clarification in this post:

I'm posting it in the hope it could simplify the process for other linux mint/ubuntu users grappling with how to build... 


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cmake git libreadline-dev uuid-dev g++ libdb++-dev libdb-dev zip libssl-dev openssl build-essential python-dev autotools-dev libicu-dev libbz2-dev libboost-dev libboost-all-dev
git clone https:// github .com/dacsunlimited/bitsharesx.git   
[remove the spaces in the github address, forum won't let me post the link]
cd bitsharesx
git submodule init
git submodule update

sudo apt-get install npm qt5-default libqt5webkit5-dev qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools nodejs-legacy
cd bitsharesx
cd programs/web_wallet
sudo npm install -g lineman
sudo npm install
cd -
make buildweb
make BitSharesX

make forcebuildweb


Instructions said the  BitShareX binary would be installed in programs/qt_wallet/, but it was in programs/qt_wallet/bin/

Trying to get build to work was like spending days trying (unsuccesfully) to learn about partial differential equations to finally execute a process that ended up being as easy as tying my shoes :-/  -- it just took changing a few keystrokes.

Somewhere there is an inconsistency in the instructions because the wiki states it correctly:
Give BitShares a try! Use the provided by powered by ChainSquad GmbH

Yes, I was following the instructions on github, not bitshares wiki:

https:// github  .com/dacsunlimited/bitsharesx/blob/master/

at the end of the page it reads:   
"The binary will be located at programs/qt_wallet/BitSharesX The wallet can be installed as a local application capable of handling xts: URLs like so:
sudo cp programs/qt_wallet/BitSharesX /usr/local/bin/"

It took me a while to realize it had installed but was just in a different folder...

(apologies, as newbie, don't know how to post a link properly here yet)

I had never problems with original instructions for my mint 7 setup (it's based on Ubuntu )
