Getting started

Electrum is a pure python application. If you want to use the Qt interface, install the Qt dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python3-pyqt5

For elliptic curve operations, libsecp256k1 is a required dependency:

sudo apt-get install libsecp256k1-0

Alternatively, when running from a cloned repository, a script is provided to build libsecp256k1 yourself:

sudo apt-get install automake libtool
./contrib/make_libsecp256k1.sh

Due to the need for fast symmetric ciphers, either one of pycryptodomex or cryptography is required. Install from your package manager (or from pip):

sudo apt-get install python3-cryptography

If you would like hardware wallet support, see this.

Running from tar.gz

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:

./run_electrum

You can also install Electrum on your system, by running this command(qtum-electrum may hava a conflict with bitcoin electrum):

sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools python3-pip
python3 -m pip install --user

This will download and install the Python dependencies used by Electrum instead of using the 'packages' directory. It will also place an executable named electrum in ~/.local/bin, so make sure that is on your PATH variable.

Development version (git clone)

Check out the code from GitHub:

git clone https://github.com/qtumproject/qtum-electrum.git
cd qtum-electrum
git submodule update --init

Run install (this should install dependencies):

python3 -m pip install -r ./contrib/requirements/requirements-eth.txt
python3 -m pip install --user -e .

Create translations (optional):

sudo apt-get install python-requests gettext
./contrib/make_locale

Finally, to start Electrum:

./run_electrum
