Question Slackware 14.2 x86 - how to install Electrum wallet?


Hi,

I downloaded Electrum wallet along with its sources, ran Electrum.SlackBuild
, got message
Quote:
Slackware package /tmp/Electrum-3.3.8-i586-1_SBo.tgz created
. After that I issued

Quote:
installpkg Electrum-3.3.8-i586-1_SBo.tgz
and got message
Quote:
Package Electrum-3.3.8-i586-1_SBo.tgz installed.
but don't quite understand what else I should run to have my wallet installed.

Could anybody tell me what to do as the next step?

The app you want requires all these other packages

QDarkStyle, secp256k1, dnspython, ecdsa, python-chardet, python-jsonrpclib, python-qrcode, protobuf3, pyaes, python3-six, python3-PyQt5, python3-certifi, python3-aiohttp, python3-aiorpcX, python3-aiohttp-socks

to be installed before Electrum will run.

I suggest you remove the package electrum and run

Code:
 sqg-p electrum
which will examine your system to find which of electrum's required packages are already installed (and will be skipped) during the install of electrum.

and when it finishes run

Code:
 sbopkg -kRqi electrum
and follow the prompts..... having read the readme(s) on the way through.

Doing it this way SBo will keep track of the packages and tell you when something need updating. (Of course you need to tell SBo to check for updates.)

Tried to run this , got this:
Quote:
bash-4.3# sqg-p electrum
bash: sqg-p: command not found
bash-4.3# sqg -p electrum
bash: sqg: command not found
Perhaps there should be another command?

Did you install all the dependencies? sbopkg can keep track of, remove, and add software from Slackbuilds.org.
https://www.sbopkg.org/downloads.php

Did you install python3 first and then all the dependencies for Electrum and their dependencies in order from left to right?
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...work/Electrum/

Here is the Electrum documentation. I've never used it. https://electrum.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

This probably belongs in the Slackware sub-forum. Maybe you should ask a moderator to move it there for you!

Ok, how can I do this? I see no links like 'Contact moderator' in thread's options.

Not that I know of, but the slackbuilds site states that
Quote:
Since 0.38.0, sbopkg includes sqg - sbopkg queueu generator which can be used to generate queue file(s) to help users building packages which requires another package(s).
https://sbopkg.org/queues.php

so perhaps you are using a version of sbo prior to version 0.38.0

One admission. To build the que please use Electrum, not electrum as I previously posted.

Edit to add. I have just checked the sqg list. There are a total of 32 packages (some of which are disabled on my system) which my systems needs to be present in my system before Electrum would/will run.

Looks like a few things might've been skipped. The first being: to follow quickbreakfast's instructions, you need to install sbopkg, which is a program that can help interact with SBo. sqg is a program within sbopkg that can generate a "queue" file that will provide sbopkg the order to build the dependencies needed for electrum.

To back up even further and cover more details on quickbreakfast's instructions, electrum has dependencies that aren't fulfilled with Slackware. They're all documented on SBo. Once those dependencies are built/installed and electrum is then installed, you should be able to follow whatever the instructions are to run electrum.
