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
