How to Install MinerGate CLI on Linux Ubuntu 18.04 and later.

Sometimes installing a MinerGate CLI on the Linux system is a pain in the ass. I tried to install it and failed, due to the dependency errors I had to install all the dependencies manually. after five attempts finally, I figure out how to get it run on the Linux Ubuntu system. a little bit tricky but it works.  You can try this method to install MinerGate 1.5 on Ubuntu 18.04 and later versions. I tested on Ubuntu 18.04 and 19.10, and it works.
First, update the system
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
Then try to install MinerGate 1.5 hoping it will work (but, trust me. it won't work)
sudo wget https://minergate.com/download/xfast-ubuntu-cli -O MinerGate-xFast-cli-1.5-ubuntu && sudo dpkg -i MinerGate-xFast-cli-1.5-ubuntu
You will receive an error saying some dependency is not installed, and blah blah blah. so let's try to install those missing dependencies manually.
 sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda-dev
Trust me, you will fail to do so, let's throw away this garb…
