XTRABYTES Qt Wallet GUI Compilation Guide for Linux

XTRABYTES Qt Wallet GUI Compilation Guide Building the XTRABYTES wallet on Ubuntu/Debian

This is a guide for compiling the XTRABYTES wallet using Linux. By following this guide, you will be able to create a GUI wallet directly from the source code.


The basic requirements for wallet compilation:

Linux (Ubuntu or Debian-based distribution is prefered but any other Linux distro can be used) 32 or 64-bit

It is recommended to have at least 1 GB of memory available when compiling the XTRABYTES wallet. Compilation will take much longer with 512 MB of memory or less.

Getting started

You need to make sure your Linux machine is up to date. Open a terminal window by clicking the right side mouse button and choosing Open Terminal while in the Desktop.

In the terminal window type:

sudo apt-get update (press Y to update) sudo apt-get upgrade (press Y to upgrade)

Note: Every time you issue a command using sudo, it will ask you for your password. It will not be visible while you type it. Press enter once you finish typing it.

It might take a few minutes to update/upgrade.

Install the dependency packages

Sometimes it is necessary to install extra libraries and dependency packages or simply to update them. Using the terminal window, type:

sudo apt-get install qt5-default qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools qttools5-dev-tools build-essential libssl-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libqrencode-dev libminiupnpc-dev

Accept any installation or update prompt by pressing the Y key.

Download the XTRABYTES source code

You can download the source code directly to your Desktop. It will automatically create a xtrabytes folder.

cd Desktop git clone https://github.com/borzalom/xtrabytes.git Final stage - Compilation

You are now ready to compile the wallet. You need to enter the directory where the source code was copied to, in this case the xtrabytes folder:

cd xtrabytes
