Tutorial focus

This tutorial assumes you have a basic knowledge of linux and terminal usage, the entire process uses the linux terminal.

Installing on Ubuntu

Obtaining signing key

First, we need to obtain the Qtum signing key from the ubuntu keyserver, here's how:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys BF5B197D

This will download and add the Qtum signing key to your linux install.

Adding repository to your APT sources.

sudo su - Sudo to root first

echo "deb https://repo.qtum.info/apt/ubuntu/ xenial main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

This will add the repository to your APT sources file. NOTE: Please remember to change "xenial" for your Ubuntu version codename

Refreshing APT sources and installing Qtum

sudo apt update && sudo apt install qtum

By doing this, we'll update our sources and install Qtum on our ubuntu Box

Installing on Debian

Obtaining the Signing key in Debian is a bit different, but not complicated

wget -qO - https://repo.qtum.info/apt/public.key | sudo apt-key add -

This downloads and installs the Qtum public key

Adding repository to your APT sources.

sudo su - Sudo to root first

echo "deb https://repo.qtum.info/apt/debian/ stretch main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

This will add the repository to your APT sources file. NOTE: Please remember to change "stretch" for your Debian version codename

Refreshing APT sources and installing Qtum

sudo apt update && sudo apt install qtum

By doing this, we'll update our sources and install Qtum on our debian Box

Launching Qtum

Launching is simple, we just go to our applications menu and scrolldown/search for qtum

This works, we can launch our Qtum wallet and start syncing!
