So I want to play with the Electrum wallet, but as Cold Storage.
Then what I plan to do is to install a raw Ubuntu 16.04 LTS into a computer "A" which I will never plug to the internet.
So, with computer "B" that has internet connection, I first download all dependencies of electrum from
apt guided by this related answer:
sudo apt-get --print-uris --yes -d --reinstall install python-qt4 python-pip $(sudo apt-cache depends yourpackage | grep " Depends:" | sed 's/ Depends://' | sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/\n//g') | grep ^\' | cut -d\' -f2 >downloads.list wget --input-file downloads.list
Now I download Electrum's tar.gz file. The last version when writing this is:
Then I download its
pip download Electrum-2.7.12.tar.gz
Now I copy all the files to a USB disk and then from this disk, to computer A.
And I run:
sudo dpkg --install *.deb sudo pip install Electrum-2.7.12.tar.gz
However, the second command fails. It seems that even if I downloaded its
pip dependencies, it doesn't pick them up and still tries to connect to the internet.
How to go on here then?
