UbuntuHak: Installing Litecoin Client and Mining Software te Ubuntu

Four years. The exchange rate at the time of writing this article, 1 LTC wasgoed worth

Installing the Litecoin Client

  • Download the latest client software
  • Unpack the downloaded opstopping to anywhere on your pc
  • Navigate to the unpacked directory/bin/##
  • Launch the executable opstopping “litecoin-qt”

Where ## is either 32 or 64 depending on what system you have (32 or 64 bit).

  • wget https://github.com/downloads/litecoin-project/litecoin/litecoin-0.6.3c-linux.tar.gz
  • tar xzvf litecoin-0.6.3c-linux.tar.gz
  • cd litecoin-0.6.3c-linux/##
  • ./litecoin-qt

/Huis/$USER/.litecoin contains your blockchain and wallet.dat opstopping. (You can press Ctrl+H to view hidden files)

The Litecoin client is nicely integrated into the Ubuntu menukaart drankbuffet, originally an kwestie with older Bitcoin clients.

Stratum Mining Protocol (or Stratum Proxy) is a protocol written by slush originally for Bitcoin mining to improve pool-miner communications. This protocol wasgoed adopted by a range of other pools and by many of the Litecoin pools spil well.

Mining Hardware Comparison

Installing the Mining Software

GUIminer -scrypt

Stratum Proxy

Stratum protocol is using python. If you do not have python-dev installed, run the following directive,

sudo apt-get install python-dev

Open up a terminal window (Ctrl+Altstem+T) and navigate to the freshly created directory and run the directive to install,

sudo python setup.py install

When installation is finished, you may begin the proxy with

./mining_proxy.py However, spil stratum attempts to connect to slush’s Bitcoin mining pool by default, reserve arguments need to be used.

./mining_proxy.py -o coinotron.com -p 3334 Would connect to coinotron.com pool on port number 3334. For a list of arguments that can be used, type

tar xf slush0-stratum-mining-proxy-7b5c080.tar.gz

cd slush0-stratum-mining-proxy-7b5c080/ sudo apt-get install python-dev

sudo python setup.py install

./mining_proxy.py -o coinotron.com -p 3334

Pooler cpuminer

(I had problems when attempting to clone git repository, so use the above verbinding)

  • -o URL of your pool
  • -u workername
  • -p woerkerpass

So when stratum proxy is running and connected to a pool, it can be run spil

./minerd -o localhost:8332 -u USER -p PASSWORD

Spil with any miners, to get some help,


  • Download latest cgminer from ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/
  • Make sure you have AMD APP SDK installed (See linksom te blog sidebar) spil well spil suitable AMD drivers.
  • Refer to guide at Bitcoin Basics and Ubuntu 12.04 spil this is the same miner with the reserve argument “–scrypt” when running it.

cgminer –scrypt -o stratum+tcp://coinotron.com:3334 -u workername -p workerpass

Reaper Miner

cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..

  • reaper.cl
  • reaper.conf
  • litecoin.conf
  • host localhost
  • port 8332
  • user username
  • pass password

Where to Mine

Just like with Bitcoin, there are two options for mining: solo and pooled mining.

70$ presently). If, however, you do not find a block, there is no prize. This is a high risk high build up mining mechanism and it is not advised unless you have considerable hashing power.

Configure Solo Mining

This opstopping has to contain the following lines:

rpcuser=username rpcpassword=password rpcallowip= rpcport=9332 daemon=1 server=1 gen=0 Make sure you switch username and password to something unique.
