Ok guys, I thought I would write this quick guide for those who have absolutely no knowledge of Linux and would like to have a go at setting up a simple system.

Firstly, install Linux onto either a second hard drive if you are confident in dual booting, or find an old computer you don't use any more. I prefer Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon, it uses Ubuntu 16.04 architecture so extremely compatible.

Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon -

Ubuntu 16.04 - ... -amd64.iso

Once you have your Linux installed MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE IT FULLY!

Ok, once you are ready you will need to open up a new terminal window.

Press CTRL+ALT+T. This will open a new terminal.

Type -
Then type-
sudo nano
A black screen will open up with no text, copy the following into this screen -
#! /bin/bash
set -x #echo on
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk maven git gcc make -y
sudo apt-get install build-essential -y
git clone git://
cd arionum-java/arionum-miner
git checkout master
touch config.cfg
chmod 755 config.cfg
echo "pool
`hostname`" > config.cfg
mvn clean package
chmod +x
chmod +x
sudo ./
When you have pasted the script into the file press CTRL+X and then "y" to save.

You will return to the command prompt, where you will need to type -
sudo chmod +x
Lastly type
If everything went well, the java miner will start mining and there you have it.

Hope this helps!
