Install ElectrumG 3.2.1 in linux machine


#1

Hi,

I’m starting to test with BTG and I would like install ElectrumG 3.2.1 in ubuntu machine.
I have found windows and mac version in https://bitcoingold.org/electrumg/.

There is some link to download a tar.gz an install it in linux machine?
I can download the source code from github and install it with sudo python3 setup.py install?

Apologies for my english

You can have a try. Basically the instructions should be the same except the singing validation part need to be take special care because it’s signed by me (check the git tag signatures).

I have download the last commit from https://github.com/BTCGPU/electrum.git (master branch).
My ubuntu version is 16.04.5 LTS.
Then I execute the next command from source folder:
sudo python3 setup.py install

The last result is:

It seems that I have an older version of the qr package installed on my ubuntu machine.
Can I resolve this problem?

I resolve the problem executing:

sudo pip install qrcode[pil]
