In continuation to the article Building from source and run a Groestlcoin node (cli only) under Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, which offers only a command line management to the Groestlcoin wallets, this article will show a more convenient way with a graphical user interface. Groistlcoin Core software includes a graphical user interface for the Groestlcoin wallet.
The first thing is to build the Groestlcoin Core software as shown in the link above with some additional dependencies and options.
It’s worth noting there is a package for the graphical Groestlcoin wallet on the official site of Groestlcoin, but the idea behind this series of articles is to build everything from the official source code and to run an own Groestlcoin node, which will be used for the user’s Groestlcoin wallet. Such no trusting anyone or any site, but only the official source code of the project. The security is really important in the crypto world.
Here are the steps to build and run the Groestlcoin node with wallet functionality – command line and graphical user interface. The graphical user interface uses QT5 to build the wallet interface and all libraries are included in the official Ubuntu repositories.
STEP 1) Build and run the Groestlcoin node
For more detailed information check out Building from source and run a Groestlcoin node (cli only) under Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
First, install the dependencies but with additional libraries including the QT5 and qrencode. Update the system and install the needed additional binaries and libraries to build and run the Groestlcoin core package. These dependencies include the ones needed to build the Groestcoin wallet functionality with GUI! By default, many Linux systems won’t even include dependencies needed to build the wallet.
sudo apt -y update sudo apt -y upgrade sudo apt install build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libtool automake libevent-dev bsdmainutils git make g++ gcc autoconf cpp ngrep iftop sysstat autotools-dev pkg-config libminiupnpc-dev libzmq3-dev libdb-dev libdb5.3++-dev sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev
