Compiling polytimos-qt wallet from source on raspberry pi

So I am a noob both at cryptocurrencies and linux, and I spent some hours figuring this out. I put this together so it might take less time for others like me.

  • Step 0a: Open a terminal window, we will use the same window the entire tutorial
  • Step 0b: Update

Write in terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Write y in terminal when prompted

  • Step 1: Install dependencies

Write in terminal:

sudo apt-get install qt5-default qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools qttools5-dev-tools 
sudo apt-get install build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev 
sudo apt-get install libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev
sudo apt-get install libboost-thread-dev libssl-dev libdb++-dev libminiupnpc-dev
  • Step 2: Download source code

Write in terminal:

git clone /home/pi/polytimos-qt

Note: this will save the code to /home/pi/polytimos-qt

  • Sted 3a: Move to the folder created

Write in terminal:

cd /home/pi/polytimos-qt

The terminal should look something like this now:

  • Step 3b: You currently need to set permission of a specific file to compile

Write in terminal:

chmod 755 src/leveldb/build_detect_platform
  • Step 4: Compile the code

I highly recommend closing any open windows (except the terminal, of course) before starting this step

Write in terminal:

qmake && make

This may take a while

  • You are done!

To open polymitos-qt you either write in the terminal:


or click the file "polymitos-qt" and press execute.

You only need the "polytimos-qt" file to use the wallet, the source code can be removed now.
