We recommend any stable version of Ubuntu 16.04
1.1 Installing Dependencies
Open the terminal and run following commands one by one:
sudo apt-get install git
sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils
sudo apt-get install libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-chrono-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-test-dev libboost-thread-dev
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev
sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev
sudo apt-get install libzmq3-dev
sudo apt-get install libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler
sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler
1.2 Giving Permissions
Once you have installed all dependencies, next step is to give read write and execute permissions to titancoin folder. For that, go to the directory where titancoin folder is located and then run:
sudo chmod -R 777 titancoin/
After sucessfully giving all permissions, go to titancoin folder and run:
cd src && make clean -f makefile.unix && make -f makefile.unix
It will take a while depending upon your system's hardware configuration (RAM and Processor)
1.4 Running Titancoin CLI
Once compilation successfully ends, you can run Titancoin daemon with following steps:
a) Make sure you are in src folder of Titancoin ( your_directory/Titancoin/src ) b) Run: ./Titancoind -daemon c) The above comamnd will create "data directory for Titancoin"(.Titancoin folder) in your home folder. And will flash an error message:
(The error message flashes for the first time only, not for subsequent uses)
Error: To use the "-daemon" option, you must set a rpcpassword in the configuration file: /home/your_linux_username/.Titancoin/Titancoin.conf It is recommended you use the following random password: rpcuser=Titancoinrpc rpcpassword=some_long_password (you do not need to remember this password) The username and password MUST NOT be the same. If the file does not exist, create it with owner-readable-only file permissions.
d) Run: touch /home/your_linux_username/.Titancoin/Titancoin.conf e) Run: nano /home/your_linux_username/.Titancoin/Titancoin.conf NOTE: Replace "your_linux_username" in above commands with your own linux username
f) Copy rpc credentails from error message to Titancoin.conf file and save. g) Run: ./Titancoind -daemon ( This time there won't be any error message ) h) Run: ./Titancoind getinfo (To check conenction status, blocks and other information) You have a running CLI wallet now
i) Refer to cli-commands for more information.
1.5 Running Titancoin-qt (Linux GUI Wallet)
After successfully comiling Titancoin CLI, you can proceed for Titancoin-qt Wallet
a) Make sure you are in Titancoin's root directory ( your_directory/Titancoin) b) Run: qmake b) Run: make c) You will see GUI wallet being complied on your screen, it will take some time. d) Once compilation ends, Run: ./Titancoin-qt e) You will see an Titancoin-qt icon in your Titancoin's root Directory, use that for subsequent uses.
