Boycutt Paypal: Installing BitCoin on Ubuntu

BitCoin is a free and open currency that will exist safely and decentralized online. Read about it.

This method is reported to work on 10.04 (Lucid), and I can confirm that it works on 10.10 (Maverick). I don't yet know about 11.04 (Natty).

  1. Open a terminal

  2. Type:

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:stretch/bitcoin

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install bitcoin

  3. To run BitCoin, navigate to Applications -> Internet -> BitCoin.

Also, remember there's Flattr, too!
