Hello, Linux newbie here, having problems with installing Armory.

I've gone through all the steps from here - https://btcarmory.com/docs/building/, everything worked fine until just after ./configure where it said -

./configure: error: missing QTCore library, make sure libqtcore4 and libqt4-dev are installed


BUT when I did the long first line, ie sudo apt-get install git-core build essential pyqt4-dev-tools.............. it says I have libqt4-dev (latest version 4:4.8.7+dfsg-7ubuntu1) as well as libqtcore4 latest version (4:4.8.7+........)

Where am I going wrong?

PS. Using Kubuntu 18.04 with Bitcore Core 0.17 running with a fully synced blockchain.

Thanks!

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. EWallets such as Coinbase are like banks -- a central organization has complete control over your money. You shouldn't put much money in EWallets.

So I was searching around and used the following to install it -

Right click on your desktop and open a terminal window

3.  First install dependencies needed for our wallet:

    Type:  sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-twisted python-psutil

4.  Then install armory:

    Type:  wget https://github.com/goatpig/BitcoinArmory/releases/download/v0.96.4/armory_0.96.4_amd64_gcc4.7_noasm.deb

    This will get what is currently the latest version of armory.  If a newer version comes out, change the link.

    Type:  sudo dpkg -i armory_0.96.4_amd64_gcc4.7_noasm.deb

----------------------------------------------------------

It seemed to work ok, ie it said it wa installed.

I want to try Building Armory From Source also.
I use Ubuntu v18.04 and always update.
The Ubuntu Build Instructions in
 - https://btcarmory.com/docs/building/
 - https://github.com/goatpig/BitcoinArmory/blob/master/linuxbuild/Linux_build_notes.md
are the same. It will end up with

./configure: line 18428: pkg-config: command not found
configure: error: missing QtCore library, make sure libqtcore4 and libqt4-dev are installed


I check my apt install, it reply

libqt4-dev is already the newest version (4:4.8.7+dfsg-7ubuntu1).
libqtcore4 is already the newest version (4:4.8.7+dfsg-7ubuntu1).


I really want to build from code for my study. Please suggest.

Please suggest.

./configure is suggesting something to you: install pkg-config

Run this command

Code:
apt-cache search pkg-config

This will list the packages that reference this name (pkg-config). In that list, look for the package that is likely to carry this binary, and install that using

Code:
sudo apt-get install *package name*

Then run ./configure again.
