My OS = Ubuntu 13.1 : How do I upgrade from 1.9.7 to 1.9.8 ?. Just thought I would ask here before I start ginning around.
wget https://download.electrum.org/Electrum-$ELECTRUM_VERSION.tar.gz #software
wget https://download.electrum.org/Electrum-$ELECTRUM_VERSION.tar.gz.asc #sig
wget https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/raw/master/pubkeys/ThomasV.asc #dev's gpg key
gpg --import ThomasV.asc #you only import once
gpg --verify Electrum-$ELECTRUM_VERSION.tar.gz.asc #verify everytime
It will output something like the following:
gpg: Signature made <date time> using RSA key ID 7F9470E6
gpg: Good signature from "ThomasV <thomasv1 gmx de>"
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: 6694 D8DE 7BE8 EE56 31BE D950 2BD5 824B 7F94 70E6
As long as it says good signature you can ignore the warning and proceed to installation.
Install or update:
pip install Electrum-$ELECTRUM_VERSION.tar.gz
BTW I can see why you would use software called Electrum
