I wanna try Bitshares, BUT..
« on: February 20, 2015, 02:15:47 PM »

i'm a linux newb, been using for about a year and a half now, whenever i grab a new app i just use the software manager to do it. Obviously bitshares does not exist in the software manager so I am gonna try this via the bitshares website tar.gz, so here it goes:
 
1. Downloaded "bitsharesGUI-0.6.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz"
2. Extracted it
3. double-clicked on the appp/executable "bitshares_client"
now what? nothing happens.
 
sad to say i was a windoze guy, but happily a linux mint guy now, decided to get rid of all m$ products. it made for an easy transition for my family too since mint was so similar to windoze. anyhooz..
 
i'd rather not do any github compile it stuff, would rather just run the executable, but it does nothing when i try to run it. ii even cmd lined it, checked the perms everything is fine there i guess, i have admin rights.
 
please give me an url or tip please, am dying to get into bitshares :)
thanx!

If all goes well a hosted web wallet (blockchain-info-style) will be available today or early next week in beta.   Good enough to TRY.

As long is there is no central control, authority or other company that can get hacked, then ok, maybe a web wallet would be ok, BUT,  I dumped my blockchain.info account since they are a central point of failure.
 
The thing that attracts me most to bitshares is the fact that it is totally decentralized. I don't ever want to past my private key into a site. Even keybase had me a bit concerned when i signed up with them for that reason. Not that I'm paranoid, but one of my companies puts bitcoin pos systems into stores and i want to stop selling bitpay because of their obvious liability and exposure to malicious types.
 
Right now, BTS is dirt cheap and I want in before the wallet comes out and every joe shmo gets in too. buy low sell high you know ;)
 
**Is there a step by step way to to install, signup, run and fund my new bts account now before that wallet is out?
Thanx :)

by the way, I love Bitshares.tv, Max is sharp. Not sure if he's a delegate, but he sure should be if he isn't. That show is how I discovered Bitshares :)
Thanx again! -ken

I'm glad you've discovered BitShares. It brings blockchain decentralization to banking, exchange, and soon other types of business and finance. Yes, Max is doing a great job and we love his work. Please feel free to post in the General section of the forum, also, since more people are reading that and you often can get a more robust discussion going there.

The server NEVER stores your private key.  But you do have to trust it to serve you honest JavaScript.  This trust will be minimized via a chrome extension which will make the trust level much closer to a simple light wallet... ie: you must trust the serve to report honest data about other accounts.

i'm hopin to do my first crypto options trading with bitshres.. calls puts iron condors etc. technical analysis can finally be done without having to worry about market manipulations like with wall street fiat. our analysis can actually make sense now! anyway, my bitcoin point of sale (pos) company here could really use bitshares too so i don't have to sell bitpay anymore, worrying about them getting hacked etc. lots of reasons why i'm so stoked about Bitshares!! :)
cheerz guys, weissbier's on me if you're in munich!

i'm a linux newb, been using it for about a year and a half now, but have never had to install anything like this before. in wondoze i would just run the exe, but i dumped all m$ products from our home.
 
are there any linux people here that could walk me thru the install of the latest bitshares_client? i have the tar.gz extracted and ready to go.
 
skype (kenCode_de) would be awesome and heck i could even send you some btc for your time!!
 
i'm desperate to get bitshares running today before bts price gets above a penny, PLEEEEEZE :)
once i finally have a bitshares account i will immediately buy a bunch thru shapeshift.
 
Please skype me or email me ([email protected]) so I can buy tonight, please and thank you for your time :)

thanx so much :)
 
here's what I get right now:
 
[email protected] ~ $ cd Downloads
[email protected] ~/Downloads $ bitshares_client
bitshares_client: command not found
[email protected] ~/Downloads $ ^C
[email protected] ~/Downloads $

I followed the steps here too:
https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares/blob/master/BUILD_UBUNTU.md
 
It compiled ok I guess, took about 30minutes, but it made it all the way through to 100% completion and gave me a prompt again so now what doI do so I can run bitshares for the first time and setup/fund an account?
 
Thanx in advance :)
