When I try to install it says:


Code:
mahkul@mahkul-Dimension-2400:~$ sudo apt-get install bitcoin                    Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package bitcoin

Is the package gone from the repository? (I succesfully added the PPA prior to installing).

Did you run sudo apt-get update before you tried to install bitcoin?

I just installed it on 10.10 and it seems to be going fine at generating blocks, I don't however have any idea what its doing or how the system works so I'm gonna go do some reading.

Goodluck

i can confirm that, provided instructions dont work in 11.04

I found an issue today with ubuntu 11.04 using either unity or compiz and the bitcoin GUI not working - the window simply does not appear.  There was already a workaround submitted to the wxwidgets repository so I've applied that patch to my ppa.

Please try installing the latest version from https://launchpad.net/~stretch/+archive/bitcoin and see if that works for you.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stretch/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bitcoin

David.

First of all, thanks for this.
I was able to add this PPA and install without a problem using Ubuntu 10.10. However the repository has version 0.3.24 of the client. Any plans on updating this to version 0.4.0?

Hey is this still active?  The version in the repos seems to be 0.3.24-beta, and 0.4.0 has been out for a while.

Thanks graingert it installed flawlessly on 11.10. Easy to follow guide for ubuntu 11.10 :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt

Now you have a nice bitcoin-qt application in the office menu.

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 8842CE5E
Bitcoin-qt didn't show up in the Ubuntu Software Center until I ran that command, but I did see bitcoind. Can anyone explain why, please?

Use my Trade Hill referral code: TH-R11519

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

what i installed was the PPA which will automatically incl updates for Bitcoin when Ubuntu recommends upgrades.  so yes, it should.

Just started Ubuntu on VM and still no bitcoin in repositories after 2 years of the project activity & dynamic development.

Is somebody working on officially pushing bitcoin to central/canonical Ubuntu repos ? This could significantly increase BTC popularity.
(The same with other distros)

I'm of the opinion that bitcoind/Bitcoin-Qt shouldn't be pushed to the central/canonical repos until we hit version 1.0.

Until then, I think we change too much too often (e.g. the blockchain format completely changed in the 0.8 release, and the wallet format will likely be changed before we hit version 1.0).

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Exactly. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Better integration with Ubuntu Unity is needed. I find that the Bitcoin menu does not appear on the Unity top menu bar.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card

Same here. Since this are packages for Ubuntu it would be expected by a normal user to behave correctcly with its default DE.
