My "best" friend Ubuntu 14 says bitcond is not installed type to install: apt-get install bitcond I typed. Succesful installed. I try open whit this command in terminal/SHH: bitcond -deamon But Ubuntu say bitcoind is not installed type to install: apt-get install bitcond WTF?? I did not know what the matter? Please help me guys!

  • Run 2 commands: sudo updatedb; locate bitcoind – Mark S. Mar 26 '17 at 11:59
  • It sounds like you need to run sudo apt-get install bitcoind – Nick ODell Mar 26 '17 at 15:41
  • Did you try running bitcoind before installing it, then installed it, and it still says it's not found? If so, try hash -r in your shell. – Nate Eldredge Mar 26 '17 at 15:43

It seems there is already a question on bitcointalk forum posted by you to which I have replied.


I think I may know your problem it is bitcoind not bitcond. Perhaps you are writing it as bitcond in your terminal. Try writing bitcoind. Also the deamon spelling is wrong it is daemon not deamon

If that is not the problem and you are typing it correctly in the terminal you might be running the GUI and the daemon at the same time using the same configaration directory.

If you are not doing that also then look the steps below. I followed it and it worked perfectly fine.

Note: Follow exactly the steps. Do not do step 2 before step 1

Step 1: Add the bitcoin ppa repository to your system.

sudo apt-add-respository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin

Step 2 : Update your packages.

sudo apt update

Step 3 : Install the bitcoind core daemon

sudo apt install bitcoind

Step 4 : Run the daemon

bitcoind -daemon

You should recieve a message that bitcon server has started successfully.

To interact with the bitcoin core you will have to use the command : bitcoin-cli

To stop the bitcoin core daemon type : bitcoin-cli stop

A complete list of commands is avaliable here: https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference#rpc-quick-reference
