i'm a linux newb, been using it 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 app/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 even cmd lined it, checked the perms everything is fine there i guess, i have admin rights. still, nothing happens, bitshares_client won't start.
Can anyone help me install bitshares on linux? I really would like to get my account setup tonight and dump some fiat into bts immediately before the price jumps.
