Getting Started

Create the icons

pyrcc4 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/

To install the wallet and all its dependencies, just do:

sudo python install

If fails with “ImportError: No module named setuptools”, install python-setuptools and run again

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools python-dev
sudo python install

Then you can run it from any directory:


Or you can run it from the source code directory:


Install in a Virtualenv (advanced)

This is a more advanced setup where you install the client not to your system but only to it’s own private Python container. You can also do this as a regular user, no need for root, except if you need to install PyQt4 to the system (see below)

Somewhere create a virtualenv and enter it

virtualenv electrum -p python2.7
source electrum/bin/activate

Install dependencies

pip install ecdsa pbkdf2 requests pyasn1 pyasn1-modules qrcode tlslite numpy SocksiPy-branch

PyQt4 is not available from pip and it is a PITA to build yourself anyway, install it through your distribution and link it into the virtualenv folder. Note that the system path of the libraries might be different on your distribution.

On Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install python-qt4

On Gentoo:

ln -s /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sip* $VIRTUAL_ENV/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
ln -s /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PyQt4 $VIRTUAL_ENV/lib/python2.7/site-packages/

Create the icons

pyrcc4 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/

Install Reddcoin Electrum

python install
