Help needed to install Linux version of the bittube wallet please


I use Linux but I am no expert.

I am trying to install the bittube wallet on Linux from
https://github.com/ipbc-dev/bittube-wallet-gui/releases

I did on fresh Ubuntu install
1) downloaded zip and unzipped two files
2) from terminal tried to run the gui wallet file with ./
3) Got error could not find shared file so then managed to download it with apt get
4) Tried to run again and got other shared file that I could not find with apt get
5) Not been able to find instructions or help from bittube as all on telegram and I am not.

Could someone here please try and then help. I would install any free Linux distribution to get it to work.

this doesn't make any sense to me.
please clarify, be precise, show us all the commands & output.

always tell us which distro you use.

read the readme:
https://github.com/ipbc-dev/bittube-wallet-gui
and tell us how the instructions therein failed.

you are aware that what you are trying to use is just a gui frontend for the actual bittube implementation?

Ok thanks,

The readme is for compiling from source, although I could get the dependencies it mentions.
I will try and get those dependencies and if still fails will also try compile from source as per instructions.

And will let you know.

I was using ubuntu-18.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso

I was unable to get the dependencies using the readme instructions. I am using ubuntu 18.04.01. The bittube-wallet-gui should be a crypto wallet for TUBE currency. The bittubed should be the thing that syncs the blockchain. On the windows version you need only to double click the bittube-wallet-gui, but running that on linux seems not to work for me.

Please see following what I tried in terminal after unzipping the two files in the release for Linux:

To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

j@ubuntu:~/Desktop/bt$ ls
bittubed bittube-wallet-gui
j@ubuntu:~/Desktop/bt$ sudo apt install build-essential cmake libboost-all-dev miniupnpc libunbound-dev graphviz doxygen libunwind8-dev pkg-config libssl-dev libzmq3-dev
[sudo] password for j:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
j@ubuntu:~/Desktop/bt$ sudo su root
root@ubuntu:/home/j/Desktop/bt# sudo apt install build-essential cmake libboost-all-dev miniupnpc libunbound-dev graphviz doxygen libunwind8-dev pkg-config libssl-dev libzmq3-dev
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
root@ubuntu:/home/j/Desktop/bt#

you neeed to fix this first.
it has nothing to do with bittube.
is another process trying to update system? do you have a gui software manager open atm? something else?
if you are 100% sure that the answer is NO to all questions, you can manually delete the file, and try again.

but even then, you still don't have all the required dependencies:
Code:
error while loading shared libraries: libunbound.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I installed fresh using vmware. Downloaded zip unzipped to new folder on the desktop.

Perhaps due to Firefox still running or perhaps due to using vmware to host Linux. Perhaps I need to restart Linux first.

I will retry.

I could after restart solve lock issue.
Many other issues on trying to run and trying to compile source there was many errors.

I think I will have to go back to running the wallet in Windows unless I get some step by step instructions that work. Shame as I wanted my wallets working in Linux for extra security, but the installation is too hard for my level of Linux knowledge.
