Title: Building GoldCoin (GLD) 0.7.x on Linux
Post by: akumaburn on January 29, 2017, 02:50:14 PM
In order to build on Linux (Ubuntu in this case):

Requirements:

From "Master" branch

Packages:

libboost-all-dev
libminiupnpc-dev
libdb4.8++-dev
libqt4-dev
libqrencode-dev
libqtwebkit-dev

For GUI:
libqtgui4

How to make:

===Daemon===
From the "src" folder:

mkdir obj
make -f makefile.unix  USE_IPV6=1 USE_UPNP=1 USE_QRCODE=1 64BIT=1 RELEASE=1
strip goldcoind

Note you may need to copy build.h from the obj folder into the src folder

===GUI===
From the goldcoin folder(one directory above src):

qmake bitcoin-qt-nix.pro USE_QRCODE=1 USE_UPNP=1 USE_IPV6=1
make

"-g" option increases executable size. Try to remove it on makefile "-g" or qtcreator  shared mk files.

I Cant get it to install on Linux Mint 17. Is anyone here running the wallet on Linux Mint that can offer a step by step tutorial? I seen a post back from 2013, that suggested making a .deb file for easy install on some Linux distros. That would be greatly appreciated and I think it would also increase wallet installs and coin interest.

I tried running it in wine but it gets an error and shuts down.

Tried installing latest version goldcoin-0.7.5.0

Thanks.

Wine sounds like you are trying to run the Windows version on Linux Mint.

There are linux executables here:  https://www.gldcoin.com/downloads/goldcoin-0.7.5.0-linux.tar.xz

This is not a .deb file, but it is a start.

Not having a ton of luck on Fedora.  Any chance an RPM is available?
