Firstly, I’d like to thank Kanoi, who wrote an excellent howto guide on “How to setup a cgminer using xubuntu 11.04 live on a USB”. However, I don’t need to mine on a USB (it’s slow compare to a HDD). Also, his guide didn’t update with the latest version of Xubuntu (12.04), which in my opinion is the easiest version of Xubuntu ever to mine bitcoin with.

Althought to mine on Xubuntu 12.04 is relatively easy, there are still some pitfalls I want to you to avoid, so I wrote this guide.

For the latest version, please visit the following address:

Found an error.

Code:
    wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run
    chmod +x amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run
    sh ./amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/precise
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

First line fetches 11.11,
next two lines refer to 12.4.

For 11.11 it should be

Code:
    wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run
    chmod +x amd-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run
    sh ./amd-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/precise
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

Fro 12.4 (7xxx series cards)

Code:
    wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run
    chmod +x amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run
    sh ./amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/precise
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

For those who don't like to click on a shortened link:

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

i found if you do not check fglrx in additional drivers, then ati catalyst will not be installed.
