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 garbages, and try to fix it all at once.

 sudo apt --fix-broken install

Ok then let's retry to install MinerGate 1.5

 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

Well done... you will be a success with flying colors... use this command to start the miner.

 sudo minergate-cli --user your@miner.email --xmr 6

In this command, as a first argument use your MinerGate email address which you used to create a MinerGate account. for the second argument add coin type you want to mine, an example I used Monero. and last, how many cores you want to run. but you don't exceed the number of cores your system has.

If you are still don’t have a MinerGate account yet? Become a member of the MinerGate community, a global fast cryptocurrency miner.

Happy mining...

  1. Hi, Thank you for this. I went through all the steps successfully until the very last login. I get

    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'spdlog::spdlog_ex'
    what(): logger with name 'core' already exists
    Aborted

    I cannot find out a workaround for this. Do you have ny ideas please?

    5. Please remove older versions of Minergate CLI before installing new one..

      sudo apt-get --purge remove minergate

      or

      sudo apt remove minergate

  2. I had the same problem. To solve it : first remove last version os xfast-minergate-cli, and after that try to install version xfast-minergate-cli-1.4 (from archive).
