How do you mine in Ubuntu 11.04? Are there any GUI miners like poclbm-gui for Ubuntu?

1 Answer 1


GUIminer can be run on linux, although the process (described in the official thread) is somewhat complicated. To summarise that post, you will need to:

  1. Get the source code from GitHub:

    git clone https://github.com/Kiv/poclbm

  2. Install OpenCL drivers and PyOpenCL.
  3. Install wxPython:

    sudo apt-get install python-wxtools

  4. Run guiminer.py:

    python guiminer.py

Note that (at least to use the poclbm backend) no compiling is necessary since GUIminer is written in python. But I can still understand if you find that process a little daunting, since I don't know your level of technological familiarity with these sorts of tasks.
