I get these two situations...

If I try to run the wallet gui file with that command, it shows as following:

amnesia@amnesia:~/Persistent/Tor Browser/monero-wallet-gui$ ./monero-wallet-gui ./monero-wallet-gui: error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Quick.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Also if I try to run from the script provided, I get the following:

./start-gui.sh ./monero-wallet-gui: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by ./monero-wallet-gui) ./monero-wallet-gui: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: versionGLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by /home/amnesia/Persistent/Tor Browser/monero-wallet-gui/libs/libproxy.so.1)

How to correct these? Thanks in advance (:

Extra: I do have the correct (32 bit) installed and also the latest Tails build.

You seem to be missing the applicable libraries for the build.

If you go to the Monero github page.


and scroll down to: Compiling Monero from Source.

And install the necessary libraries highlighted, that should resolve your issue.


I believe 64-bit is still a requirement for the GUI client.

Also, TAILS intentionally makes it difficult to install new packages and libraries.

I recently attempted running a miner client which TAILS told me had missing dependencies. Subsequently, I attempted to install the dependencies in the terminal with sudo apt-get install <package-name>, but it produced an error I'd never seen before, something like 'UNIX 13 error ...'.

You might try and see if you are able to install the needed dependencies using a similar command in your terminal in TAILS, something like: sudo apt-get install GLIBCXX_3.4.21.

I would think that the ability to package applications in a portable fashion would improve over time going forward as a result of the 'containerization' trend (a la Docker)...

Hope this helps explain what's (most likely) happening for you at least.

Have you tried the CLI (command-line) Wallet on TAILS yet?

  • Also: You can consider trying to download any needed dependencies from another system onto a USB, loading them up while in TAILS, and moving them to the specified locations in the Live OS.

  • You will need to make sure you had set an Administrator password during initial pre-boot process. Click on the '+' button to see these options: Additional Settings dialog appears, click on Administration Password. Specify a password of your choice in both the Administration Password and Confirm text boxes then click Add. see: tails tutorial on setting admin password
