Build Instructions

cd linX

See docs for flags, deps and more info.

If you are running linXd (the daemon) or want to run the Linx Wallet (Qt version) on the testnet you will need to create a .conf file.

  1. Create a blank text file and paste in the following:
  1. Save the file as linX.conf

  2. Place it inside the following DIR depending on your system:




/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/linX


  1. Start Daemon / Wallet

Notes about the compiled Ubuntu binaries

This is NOT a static build. It requires external libraries for it to work. If you have built other wallets on your computer before, the chances are that you will already have all of the required libraries. If not see the build docs.

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.

If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the Linx development team members simply pulls it.

If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion with the devs and community.

The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing. Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't match the project's coding conventions (see doc/coding.txt) or are controversial.

The master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be completely stable. Tags are created regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of Linx.
