I have tried with (32bit) both Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS current) and also Ubuntu 13.10 (current), and in both cases, maxcoind and maxcoin-qt refuse to run, and show errors. The errors initially complain such as
error while loading shared libraries: libdb_cxx-5.1.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
In one test I had a copy of the 'missing' file in the current directory, still the error. I also tried the maxcoin-qt (32bit) executable in an Ubuntu 64bit installation. No joy.
I conclude now that the Maxcoin-linux32 simply does not work for Ubuntu. I would love to know if anyone has better experience, and what to do.

I have an Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS current) 64bit installation also, and unfortunately I found the same problem showing for maxcoin-qt
Happily though, I found that maxcoind *did* work in this environment, and mining does seem to be running.
After the rather painful attempts variously trying to start up, I have to say I am not entirely sure I know what I did exactly to get maxcoind running in the 64bit machine :-/

I am a mining novice so being stuck with a terminal wallet is pretty uncomfortable, and unless I can find a way to run a gui wallet I will not be staying around maxcoin very long.
Are there any gui wallets other than maxcoind?

Comments would be appreciated. tia

1st make sure you make the maxcoin.conf file in the Maxcoin directory and put all the nodes you can find in it. Then, even though the guide says to qmake and make from the MaxCoin directory, you have to do it in the src directory. At least that's what worked for me.

Thanks for your response. However, the problem is that the executable will not run at all, apparently because of missing dependencies.
Your ref to qmake - relates to something other than the wallet? maybe to compile? My understanding is that the wallets for 32 and 64bit linux are not offered for compilation, but only as binaries(?)
eg
./maxcoind
or for gui
./maxcoin-qt

etc etc

when these executables are correctly invoked, I get errors, mostly referencing (what seems to be) a berkeley database .so however, even when the .so file is apparently available, the errors persist.

Thoughts?

I again tried using
https://github.com/Max-Coin/guides/blob/master/build-linux.md

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS does not seem to support miniupnpc ('troubleshooting' section)
so I went ahead and tried to build that as suggested. It seemed to go without errors, however
when the original 'Building on Linux' procedure was run again, then errors are still shown complaining of miniupnpc:
===========
The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 libminiupnpc-dev : Depends: libminiupnpc8 (= 1.6-3ubuntu1) but 1.6-precise2 is to be installed
 qt-sdk : Depends: libqt4-opengl-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
===========

Note
I am using Ubuntu because I want a convenient pointy-clicky computing experience alternative to Windows or Apple, As an Ubuntu street level user, it is not realistic to consider anything other than a .deb, particularly for the average street level user. A lot of novices I know, use Ubuntu, they are not geeks in any way. But they would maybe use Maxcoin.........
I am more of a techie than that, but not much.

I have to conclude that the wallets cannot (at present) be run on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bit, or Ubuntu 13.10 32bit.
As mentioned earlier, I somehow managed to get maxcoind running (and mining) on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit, however, life with Maxcoins will be impractical unless I (and other people??) can get the gui wallet working!

Will other wallets work with Maxcoin? I could just dump maxcoin-qt??

Thinking of the growing coverage of Ubuntu use (China government, French also, Indian judiciary, whatever), phones also coming out soon, then Maxcoin convenient wallets in Ubuntu will be important, not least for Maxcoin. So If anyone can assist with the situation, please do?
