Thanks FuzzyBear.

Maybe some dev who uses Ubuntu will eventually set it up to be gettable with apt-get but so far DeVCoin seems to work on the principle that if you are a dev you can surely figure out how to compile it and if not you can buy some on Vircurex or mine at a pool that merges it, such as bitparking's merged mining pool.

I traded BTC, PPC, TRC, DevCoins, and LTC.  In only have a Bitcoin wallet (and software) on my PC.  The rest I just used online wallets like vircurex...  I end up trading for Bitcoins anyway.  I think it's the easiest way.

Ok so using doublec version of Devcoin from the github here https://github.com/doublec/devcoin

Assuming u have git installed on Ubuntu use the command in the terminal:
Code:
git clone https://github.com/doublec/devcoin.git

Once the download has finished change directory into the src folder:
Code:
cd ./devcoin/src

I got a few error message during installing as i did not have curl installed and a few other dependencies, so install the following using the commands:
Code:
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev

You may need to run the following line in the terminal for some other dependencies (I did not do this as I had already installed them when building the bitcoin client)
Code:
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libminiupnpc-dev libwxgtk2.8-dev

Now just compile in the terminal using the makefile command, I did the compile without UPNP activated
Code:
make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=1 devcoind

You have now created the devcoind.exe which you can start by typing
Code:
./devcoind

You will need to set a username and password in the config file located in your home directory .devcoin (this directory may be hidden) so open that directory and set a username and passwords.  I had to create a file which i called devcoin.conf and is identical to the bitcoin conf i have for this test purpose, though i changed port to 6333.

I also had to create a folder called "receiver" in the   .devcoin folder and downloaded the receiver_0.csv  to receiver_20.csv files to the .devcoin/receiver directory from here http://92.105.105.155/devcoin/  (thank you for the link Icoin)

Restart the devcoin server again and this time it should start downloading the blockchain,
and boom that's it Cool

open another terminal and cd into the src directory again..
Code:
cd ./devcoin/src
or right click in the terminal and open new tab (opens in same directory Smiley)

now run various commands against the devcoind such as:
Code:
./devcoind getinfo
./devcoind help

if all is well u will get a readout from getinfo command something like:
Code:
{
    "version" : 32501,
    "balance" : 0.00000000,
    "blocks" : 8966,
    "connections" : 5,
    "proxy" : "",
    "generate" : false,
    "genproclimit" : -1,
    "difficulty" : 92.94920663,
    "hashespersec" : 0,
    "testnet" : false,
    "keypoololdest" : 1363646484,
    "keypoolsize" : 101,
    "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
    "errors" : ""
}

so yup that's it hope this was helpful feel free to ask any questions and all tips / donations are very much appreciated Smiley

Is there a reason why the devcoin wallet isn't just a simple download-install-sync ?

cause devs usualy know how to compile it.

If you need a windows binary, the one created by K1773R will probably work for you (its not working on x64):

Fuzzybear - thanks for your detailed post (and sorry for the delay in responding - life threw me a curve ball) it was just what I was looking for!  Unfortunately it didn't work - I have downloaded various versions in the past when I tried to install so I have  devcoin folder in my home folder that is locked, and not a .devcoin folder.  I have given up - but will be getting a new machine soon and will try again on a new install.  I sent you .15btc about a week ago but never told you - just wanted to give you a heads up.  Thanks again.

Hello lovebit,

No worries for the late reply, I assumed it had either worked for you and you were busy enjoying playing round with your devcoin wallet on the Ubuntu platform, or yes as you had said, life throws a curve ball at ya when u least expect it!! Trust me soo many of my projects and other aspects of my life seem to suffer from this curve ball, if only i could catch the person throwing me all of them and just ask them to STOP!!!

But back to your post, I can see that you are very nearly there!! and didn't want you to get stuck at the last hurdle.  Two things I should explain about Ubuntu here for you as I have only recently come to use this platfom myself in the last few months (so I am by no means the expert on the matter, but here is what I have picked up that may help you in your current situation.

The folder you are looking for is called ".devcoin" and I am not refering to the "devcoin" folder which you have as well.  The devcoin folder should contain all the source code and the build you have done for devcoind, the .devcoin folder should contain your config file, wallet.dat and the logs and blockchain etc.  The two points i'm trying to make are basically on hidden folders and folder permissions. You will find that by default the .devcoin folder will be hidden, and folder permissions is something I am still getting my head round as there are terminal commands you can do, but people talk about doing these with great care as you do not want to unlock your whole folder structure to read write for everyone, so they recommend trying in various steps.

If you do need to change folder permissions have a read of this first https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions

but try this first to see if you can gain access to the .devcoin folder.

On your Ubuntu system open up a file browser and navigate to you "home" directory.

Then just press Ctrl + H

You should see a number of hidden folders now visible and you should be able to navigate into them Smiley

If these folders have permissions on them then have a look at the link i send above and let me know if you still having problems and I'll see if I can give you the command for your terminal, or someone else may pop up and tell you what to type in the terminal.

Many thanks for the 0.15BTC Cheesy really appreciated and I hope you can have your devcoin wallet set up soon,

Once you have your wallet, don't forget that you can earn devcoins by writing articles in http://www.devtome.com ... lets just say this is the latest positive curve ball life has thrown at me Smiley

I'm working with Debian here. Stuck at this step as it gives me "error: the requested URL returned error: 403 warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout". A second try tells me that the directory is not empty  Huh

When I follow the instructions and type the following command on Ubuntu 12.10 x64:
Quote
sudo make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP= devcoind

This is all I see:
Quote
g++ -c -O2 -Wno-invalid-offsetof -Wformat -g -D__WXDEBUG__ -DNOPCH -DUSE_SSL -fno-stack-protector -fstack-protector-all -Wstack-protector -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -o obj/nogui/auxpow.o auxpow.cpp
make: g++: Command not found
make: *** [obj/nogui/auxpow.o] Error 127

I assume that means that it didn't compile?

Also, will we ever have control of github.com/devcoin/devcoin.git or will it always be github.com/doublec/devcoin.git Huh

I have been having similar difficulty with the install of the devcoin wallet on my system - I will try the older edition, since my system is a Mint Linux 12. I do have a question as far as what system configuration (os / hardware combined) suited this install (from people who have installed it) - sometimes you just can't 'get there from here' on certain configs (if you know what I mean). It might be good to keep a bit of a database of compatible configurations for admin use for devcoin overall.
