Hello there, I wrote an App for Ubuntu, called Easy Bitcoin Installer and I thought you might want to check it out. If you are interested.

Easy Bitcoin Wallet Installer is an App for newbies. It helps you install any Bitcoin Wallet on your Ubuntu installation.

Who tells us it doesn't install a wallet-stealer? Roll Eyes

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

I wrote an easy Linux Bitcoin installer too:

wget downloads.sourceforge.net/project/bitcoin/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.8.6/bitcoin-0.8.6-linux.tar.gz
tar xzvf bitcoin-0.8.6-linux.tar.gz
./bitcoin-0.8.6-linux/bin/32/bitcoin-qt

That is the source that he posted (though not the source to what the OP posted). First he uses wget to download the compressed archive of bitcoin-qt from the official sourceforge project. Then he uses tar to uncompress the file and expand the archive. The third line runs bitcoin-qt.

Oh sorry, that's the entire "easy installer" ..... its not really an easy installer at all is it. Its just how you would naturally install the client from the command line in unix. But sure, no source code required for that one as its crystal clear its not doing anything naughty  Smiley

Cool thanks. Might be nice to mention its "open source" in any announcement post. I won't even bother to click on a link to any software unless I know its open source from the get-go. Paranoid? Definitely Smiley

In Windows7 I have once clicked a link that I was convinced changed my computer without any permissions.  But once is all it takes to change your BTC too.

Do you even mine?

That's why you should be paranoid, or preferably not use Windows 7  Smiley

One must maintain many operating systems.  Admit it, you've got one of each too don't ya.

Win7 + not being silly has been ok with security.  I have to keep win7 on my computer issued to me, but I've liked it a lot.  The command line is not useful for me with my level of skill however, for this linux is king.

Do you even mine?

How do you know its been ok with security? I'm not being paranoid. Asking a serious question.

Linux is much better securitywise, believe .... the community.

I wonder why people think that everything that's open source is safe even if they can't read a single line of code  Tongue
Obviously that's not the case here since it's just a script not really a program  Tongue

Its safer because even if you can't read a piece of the code, "the community" can.

Sure, its not perfect. but it sure beats the malware that Skype and Microsoft knock up behind closed doors. Ask them to release their soure code.

I do trust what the community says.  When I mentioned windows I was comparing it to my experience on previous windows platforms.  I don't know if there is a keylogger running on my windows machine, its true.  Just a comment on the massive change that win7 was.  Pretty much no bologna that is visible so far... this isn't really a comment about bitcoin security anymore. 

Older windows systems were virus town. 

Do you even mine?
