Install Komodo Ocean wallet on Linux

Komodo Ocean is a native wallet for storing, sending and receiving Komodo and Komodo asset-chain funds, developed by ip-gpu and Komodo team member Decker.

NOTE: This guide explains the process of installation using pre-built binaries. 

If you'd like to build Komodo Ocean from source, follow the README guide at https://github.com/DeckerSU/KomodoOcean

To install the latest release, download the komodo-qt-linux.tar.gz archive from  https://github.com/DeckerSU/KomodoOcean/releases


Extract the archive, then open a Terminal and navigate to the folder containing it's contents (or) Navigate to the Directory -> Right click -> Open in Terminal. 

Run the command "ls" to make sure your Terminal's current directory is in the correct location.

ls

Output:

fetch-params.sh  komodo.conf  komodo-qt-linux
The output in your Terminal should match the above.
Now, run the script to download the z-cash parameters by typing the following command - 
./fetch-params.sh

If they are already installed, the script will exit automatically, otherwise wait for them to download.

Once the download is complete, open the file named "komodo.conf" from the directory in a text editor and change the values for "rpcuser" and "rpcpassword" to some other values and save the file. There is no need to remember these values.

Example:

rpcuser=user2560886965
rpcpassword=passd4eeee81858b3fcc9a6e780b8e3615e311e359cb98d8e14f974d31b99b5a6ee9d8

Now, run the following command in the Terminal to create a directory named ".komodo" in your Home directory and move the file "komodo.conf" to it.

mkdir -p ~/.komodo && cp komodo.conf ~/.komodo

Then, run the following command to launch the Komodo Ocean QT wallet

./komodo-qt-linux



Wait for the blocks database index to load.
