  • Can you post what, if anything, appeared in ~/.bitcoin after attempting to run bitcoin? What happens when you run bitcoin-qt -? in a terminal, or just bitcoin-qt? (Comment from Matt Corallo as requested) – kirian Apr 9 '12 at 1:08

There is a bin folder that contains the binary. There are two folders in that folder, "32" and "64". You have to know what type of system your mint/computer is. It either a 32 bit system or 64 bit system. If you click on on a 32 bitcoin-qt on a 64 bit computer it will not start and vice versa.
