Hello, I'm trying to install a Bitcoin client. Which just seems to be impossible with Fedora 17. HALP PLOX!!!1 (I will put @s around terminal lines to reduce confusion)
So trying to install Electrum, typically done with this command:
@ sudo pip install http://ecdsa.org/electrum/Electrum-0...4b93917860069b
which results in:
@ [your admin account with root access] is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported. @
So Ok. Looks Like I'm not installing Electrum. Better try Bitcoin(thats the name of the bitcoin client itself) So I download bitcoin-0.6.2-linux.tar.gz, and open with archive manager. Then I extract that folder to Files>Computer>home>desktop. So then I go to the file location, and the README says...
You need the Qt4 run-time libraries to run bitcoin-qt. On Debian or Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install libqtgui4
Unpack the files into a directory and run:
bin/32/bitcoin-qt (GUI, 32-bit)
bin/32/bitcoind (headless, 32-bit)
bin/64/bitcoin-qt (GUI, 64-bit)
bin/64/bitcoind (headless, 64-bit)
"Ubuntu or Debian"? Alright, well that's not happening. Maybe we'll try the file route instead. I open up the BIN folder, which has 32 and 64 bit versions of 2 files: bitcoind and bitcoin-qt, the icons for these files is a purple diamond with gears, whatever file type that is(I'm obviously new to Linux). So I click on all these files, but nothing happens, other than "___ was selected, ___MB".
Also, my GUI is gnome is that is relevant. INFINITE APPRECTIATION for whoever helps me.
