Installation Instructions: Windows

Use easywinbuilder in the "contrib" folder

Installation Instructions: Ubuntu 14.04

  • Install the following dependencies using your terminal program:
apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev
sudo apt-get install libqrencode-dev qt4-dev-tools qt4-qmake libqt4-dev git
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8++-dev

For 16.04 use libdb++-dev (Some versions of Ubuntu do not have libminiupnpc-dev available. You can download miniupnpc libraries here: Use the instructions to install in doc section.

  • Download the paccoin repository
cd ~
git clone paccoin

This will create a directory called "paccoin" and copy the files into it. 
  • Next we're going to compile the programs.
cd paccoin/src
make -f makefile.unix

This will generate the headless paccoind file. (rpc commands can be made from the terminal ie. "./paccoind help")

  • Run this by using the following command.


The file should end and state that an rpcuser and rpcpassword needs to be added. By running this you have now created a hidden directory located at ~/.paccoin.

  • Enter that directory.

cd ~/.paccoin

  • Using a text editor create your file paccoin.conf and change the rpcuser and rpcpassword for security reasons.
nano paccoin.conf

if you intend to solo mine use the following as an example:

rpcallowip=192.168.1.* (for lan, or use a direct IP)
gen=0 (use 1 to generate coins (this will cause your computer to run at 100% cpu))

Save this file.

  • Now you're ready to compile and run your wallet.
cd ~/paccoin

You should see the file paccoin-qt which you can execute by double clicking on it in file manager. This is your wallet gui.

It is also recommended that you change the passphrase to something you can remember. If you lose your passphrase there is no way to get it back and you will lose any money in your wallet, so be careful.
