Electrum DASH LINUX client


New member
Any news on the new version of the Electrum Dash Linux client? When will it be released? I need it urgently!

What the hell am I supposed to do to make this work? All I get is endless compile bullshit and apt-get failure. Windows and Mac get ready-made executables and Linux some computer science lab abortion - wtf?
Sigh... I've got buried down in operational details (not software, business operational) and got distracted from the project.

Which Linux distro you've got? I bet, the packaged solution is in the roadmap.

If you're in hurry - PM me and we'll solve the build issue.

Or, let's do it here in public, but you'll write the howto ;)
I tried on 64bit Ubuntu 16.04 and 17.04

If I can understand what I need to do, I'd be reasonably confident about writing a howto.
Hello all,
Is it possible to install the linux version of the electrum-dash wallet on a Raspberry Pi 3 with Rasbian? I would like to use it as my cold wallet, as for my LTC and BTC wallets.
I have tried downloading and unpacking the file "electrum-dash-2.6.4.tar.gz" from the site but I could not manage a way to install it on my Pi.
Follow Electrums instructions (replace with electrum-dash url ofc):

I also needed:
sudo apt-get install libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev

EDIT: (Ubuntu 16.04 amd64)
Fwiw, I tried making a deb package, fairly simple, resulted in a separate package for each dependency though. Might be possible to bundle as a single package but we could probably do with a Dash repo.
