I installed wallet Monero on Linux Elementary OS and I have a problem. I don't have app in my applications. I have only folder /home/user/Monero/ How can I use my wallet if I don't have app?

It is my first time. I am learning about cryptocurrency.

  • Open a new terminal from the same directory as monero-wallet-gui. Subsequently type -> ./start-gui.sh – dEBRUYNE Dec 20 '17 at 16:04

  • I am not sure, it might. Note that you can always request it by opening a new issue on the Monero GUI Github. I've also added my comment as an answer. Please mark it as "answered" if you feel it has sufficiently answered your question. – dEBRUYNE Dec 20 '17 at 19:33
  • Ok, I understand – Paul Dec 20 '17 at 19:34

Currently, the GUI isn't distributed as an app. Thus, it has to be started from the terminal. As Linux Elementary is based on Ubuntu, simply perform these steps:

  1. Browse to the directory monero-wallet-gui is located.

  2. Open a new terminal.

  3. Type -> ./start-gui.sh

You should now be able to use the GUI.
