I'm trying to follow the directions from here...


I'm running a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04.1 x86 in VirtualBox.

When I get to "make" it gives me the following fatal error.

In file included from main.cpp:38:0:
src/libwalletqt/WalletManager.h:5:32: fatal error: wallet/wallet2_api.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
Makefile:596: recipe for target 'main.o' failed
make: *** [main.o] Error 1

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Got some help from radfish on github...


Here's what radfish said...

You need to manually merge monero-project/monero-core/PR # 14 in order to build (alternatively use develop branch in this repo), because monero daemon repo was updated to not build/install wallet lib/headers by default (need to pass BUILD_GUI_DEPS=ON option to cmake).

Here's what I did...

$ git clone -b develop https://github.com/mbg033/monero-core
$ cd monero-core
$ ./build.sh

And the resulting binary was in ~/monero-core/build/release/bin/monero-core
