Electrum - Lightweight FairCoin client
Licence: MIT Licence Author: Thomas König Original Author: Thomas Voegtlin Language: Python (>= 3.6) Homepage: https://download.faircoin.world/
Electrum is a pure python application. If you want to use the Qt interface, install the Qt dependencies:
sudo apt-get install python3-pyqt5
If you downloaded the official package (tar.gz), you can run Electrum from its root directory without installing it on your system; all the python dependencies are included in the 'packages' directory. To run Electrum from its root directory, just do:
You can also install Electrum on your system, by running this command:
sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools python3 -m pip install .[fast]
This will download and install the Python dependencies used by Electrum instead of using the 'packages' directory. The 'fast' extra contains some optional dependencies that we think are often useful but they are not strictly needed.
If you cloned the git repository, you need to compile extra files before you can run Electrum. Read the next section, "Development Version".
Check out the code from GitHub:
git clone git://github.com/faircoin/electrumfair.git cd electrumfair
Run install (this should install dependencies):
python3 -m pip install .[fast]
Compile the protobuf description file:
sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler protoc --proto_path=electrum --python_out=electrum electrum/paymentrequest.proto
Create translations (optional):
sudo apt-get install python-requests gettext ./contrib/make_locale
Install on Linux systems
If you install Electrum on your system, you can run it from any directory.
If you have pip, you can do:
python setup.py sdist sudo pip install --pre dist/ElectrumFair-2.0.tar.gz
If you don't have pip, install with:
python setup.py sdist sudo python setup.py install
