Maybe I missed it, but I haven't seen any coherent all-in-one setup tutorials for PPC.  I'd like to give it a try, but this is looking a bit sloppy, and I already feel in over my head.  I haven't even gotten a wallet installed yet, let alone any miners.  I've seen some brilliant people working on crypto currencies, but sadly enough, a terrible lack of good artists and GUI designers.

Anyway.....Can someone please post a guide on PPC installation and mining? Thanks.

Windows
Download:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ppcoin/files/0.2.1/ppcoin-0.2.1-win32-setup.exe/download
Run the setup

Navigate to:
C:\Users\{Your Username}\AppData\Roaming\PPCoin
If not already there, create a file called ppcoin.conf with whatever text editor you prefer.

Add:
rpcuser=<user>
rpcpassword=<password>

To the ppcoin.conf file using any user/password combination you would like. I would suggest at least a 24 character long password.
Save the file as plain text and make sure windows does not try and be "helpful" by adding a extension to your extension. (For example: ppcoin.conf.txt).

While it is true that the official ppcoin client is command line only, Tittiez has converted the BTC QT client to work with PPC:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=101820.msg1155952#msg1155952
The file can be downloaded at:
http://www.mediafire.com/?cn7f76tsu3j6pf2

To work with the official client, open a command prompt to the wherever the PPC client was installed and run the ppcoind.exe.
You could also navigate to it , right click the ppcoind.exe and "Run as administrator"

Normally located at:
64 bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\PPCoin\daemon
32 bit C:\Program Files\PPCoin\daemon

In both cases just minimize the window afterword to allow it to run in the background.
Basically the same as running the BTC client in a nogui daemon mode. The PPC client is basically the BTC client modified to run PPC.

To issue commands, open a command line to it and simply run the ppcoind.exe {command}
For example: ppcoind getinfo

I just use the qt client most of the time for everyday use.

For mining setup is pretty much the same as BTC. Just add to the ppcoin.conf:

server =1

If you are using miners that are on the local network , but not local on the machine. Set the ip address to any range you want with * as a wild card. For example 172.16.1.*

rpcallowip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

The miner itself  you setup the same as BTC just use port 9902 instead of the BTC port.

For example with cgminer ran locally on the same machine as the daemon:

address: 127.0.0.1:9902
rpc username
rpc password

I will work on a more formal guide over the next few days and publish it.

If you need a guide for linux, let me know and I will type up a quick one in this thread.

Basically the same setup as BTC only

rpcuser=<user>
rpcpassword=<password>

are required in the ppcoin.conf located in the .ppcoin folder
