Thank for your feedback guys, and sorry for the bad experience you had.@DrSluice
My bad, I didn't updated the build notice yesterday. It's a very new fork so some old stuff are still here, sorry for the time you have wasted.
Today, thank to your feedback, i have worked on this point and you can now build and launch the wallet directly from the source, just with this following line in the terminal :
sudo apt-get install -y git
git clone https://github.com/lomtax/digitalcoin.git
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y build-essential libtool autotools-dev autoconf pkg-config libssl-dev
sudo apt-get install -y libboost-all-dev libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev libqt4-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler
sudo make install
I've tested those lines on a fresh new install of Ubuntu 17.10 and it's building like a charm.
I will remove the linux build from the release page of github because this way is far better for having an updated build on Linux.
I also updated the build notice on the project main page.
Hope this work well for you this time.@verloren
Can you tell me more about your configuration? What version of windows are you using? and did you have a previous digitalcoin wallet installed on your PC?
I have tested this build on multiple windows 10 with no previous digitalcoin installed and i didn't had any problem.
If you had a previous version, you can try to remove your C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Digitalcoin folder before opening this build.Warning : Of course, make a backup of your Wallet.dat before removing the folder
Hope this work well for you too.
I'm currently working on a new version for removing the need of adding manually the node list into the conf file.
Linux users aldready have this feature with the process i wrote before. Other builds will come soon.
