Starting BitShares for Linux 32-bit/64-bit
« on: December 17, 2014, 06:13:19 PM »

Hi, I downloaded the file from bitshares/download and am thrilled to see such a file for ubuntu. But after I extracted it I don*t know how to start it.
It*s like nothing happens after I clicked on it and it asked me to execute it or execute it in the terminal. thx!!!

I am downloading now the dependencies :
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 zlib1g-dev


I am almost sure it helps.

You can also try:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:showard314/bitshares
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install bitshares

that will install all the needed dependencies, add the icon to your dash menu, and allow you to do either from the command line:

Code: [Select]
$ BitShares
$ bitshares_client

It say*s "critical error" now. I think because I didn*t shut it down properly.

sudo apt-get remove BitShares and then re-instaling doesn*t help. It still says Critical Error, I think I have to delete more.

it you have low ram and atom, try using the cli first (not the GUI) - at least until blocks sync.

1st, delete ~/.BitShares/chain

then:
$ bitshares_client

and watch/let it sync

once it's ready, (will say "in sync with network" or something like that), you can close it (tpying "exit") then try opening the GUI

It*s working. Had something to do with ram and power. But I only get 60 blocks per second. Maybe because the home folder is encrypted. Do you have any tips to make it faster? Thx

Yes, it's a little memory and CPU intensive.

once the devs fix some of the recent bugs, there is a new config option in ~/.BitShares/config.json
"track_statistics": true

change it to
"track_statistics": false

and it should be faster. Again, that particular feature is temporarily broken. Don't know when it will be back.

The problem is that when I quit BitShares GUI it will not quit and I have to restart or kill it. Afterwards it won*t start again (critical error). Same with bitshares_client.
To delete the blockchain folder alone does not fix the problem, so I have to delete everything but the wallet folder to make it work again. Running the client and exitiing and then start the GUI does not work because the GUI will be stuck at the last synced block.
