How To Install Bitcoin 0.9.1 On Ubuntu, Linux Mint And Elementary OS

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Bitcoin is a descentralized digital currency developed in 2008. First you choose a wallet application and share your bitcoin address, to be easy to find. Via Bitcoin, you can buy games or pay for hosting, and, unlike paypal, there aren’t many comissions. For more information on how to earn bitcoins, see the official site.

In this article I will show you how to install the Bitcoin 0.9.1 client on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.

Because it is available via PPA, installing Bitcoin 0.9.1 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the bitcoin package. Like this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install bitcoin

Optional, to remove bitcoin, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove bitcoin

Or, if you want to uninstall bitcoin, disable the recently added PPA and downgrade all the packages that got updated via the PPA, do:

$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
