BitcoiNote GUI Wallet

This is a GUI wallet for usage with the FestivalCoin (FEST) cryptocurrency.


You first need to clone the FestivalCoin Core repository. Then, create a symlink named cryptonote to the repository you just cloned.


Tested only with Ubuntu 16.04.

Dependencies: GCC 4.7.3 or later, CMake 2.8.6 or later, Boost 1.58 and Qt5 (<5.8).

You may download them from:
Alternatively, it may be possible to install them using a package manager.

To create the symlink to the core directory, use:

ln -s ../festival cryptonote

To build, run the following commands in the project's root directory:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DPORTABLE=1 ..

The resulting executables can be found in build directory which will be created. (For Windows, look in subfolder Release or Debug respectively.)

Windows 64bit


Qt5 version < 5.8 (Tested with 5.6)
libboost 1.58 or greater (Tested with 1.65.1)
cmake 2.8.6 or greater (Tested with 3.10.2)
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 (Tested with VS2015)
Visual C++ Build Tools v120 (Tested with v140)

To create the symlink to the core directory, use:

mklink /D cryptonote ..\festival

To build, run the following commands in the project's root directory, but make sure to substitute the Visual Studio version for the one that you use, and that the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH points to your Qt files, and to replace the VCTargetsPath with one that works for you:

mkdir build
cd build
set PATH="c:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.15063.0\x64";%PATH%
set VCTargetsPath=C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\v140
cmake -G "Visual Studio 14 Win64" -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH="C:\Qt\5.6\msvc2015_64" -DPORTABLE=1 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..
msbuild FestivalWallet.sln /m /p:Configuration=Release

In your build folder there should now be a new folder named Release, with the binaries. You still need to copy some library files into that folder (replace <Qt> with the path to your Qt files):


To compile the debug version, omit the /p:Configuration=Release parameter. Then you need to copy the debug dlls instead of the normal ones. These have the same name, only with a d at the end (e.g. Qt5Cored.dll), and are in the same location, except for ucrtbased.dll which you can find in C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x64\ucrt\ucrtbased.dll.

Usage Notes

To run the GUI wallet, the FestivalCoin daemon is not required to run. If a daemon already runs, it will be used - otherwise the wallet will use its own "internal daemon" instead.
