Ubuntu help for Newbie
« on: August 11, 2014, 01:59:32 PM »

After failing to build Dry Run 12 on win 7, I gave Ubuntu a chance. But have not success here either.

So can somebody please post all commands I need to run to accomplish that – I. e. good enough instructions for 3.5 y old, hopefully will do  :)
Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/BitShares_X_Solutions#I_want_to_compile_the_Linux_GUI

or if happy with the CLI wallet/running a delegate http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/Bitshares-x-delegate-how-to

I mean I know these links that I provide are far from perfect, but thats why it would be more helpful if you explain where you get hung up so the documentation can be updated/fixed.
I speak for myself and only myself.

This is assuming a fresh clean install of Ubuntu.  You can copy/paste most of these commands if you want to set it up like me.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get git
cd ~
mkdir github
cd github

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
git clone https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares_toolkit.git
cd bitshares_toolkit

git checkout develop
./setenv.sh
git submodule init
git submodule update
cmake .
make
cd programs/client
./bitshares_client

./bitshares_client

Thanks.Great.  - It turn out I had that part already:


when I get to this part of the instructions:

sudo apt-get install npm qt5-default libqt5webkit5-dev
cd bitshares-toolkit
cmake -DINCLUDE_QT_WALLET=ON .
cd programs/web_wallet
sudo npm install -g lineman
npm install
cd -
make buildweb
make BitSharesXT


when I try  npm install I get:
npm ERR! weird error 127

Do I really need the second part?

You need to install npm with sudo however for the DR12 testing you use the CLI in programs/client so no you don't need the second part yet.

remark: from a chat with cass i heard that there is a trading "wallet" in heavy development .. so unless you really need that gui to run trades on the blockchain you should not compile it and run the terminal mode .. (if you are comfortable with it and can wait for the final trader gui to come)
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

Thanks both - A LOT!
I do not need GUI, I think.
