NameCoin compile from source on Ubuntu

I’ve been having trouble with the binary qt on my windows machine. So I backed up the Namecoin wallet and compiled from source.

First, I got the source from the official namecoin-qt github project:

After getting this setup, I found that it did not work with the NOMP pool because of the batch processing.

So after asking some questions in the NOMP project, I was informed that the NOMP project is dead, but UNOMP is the new version. So I set up UNOMP (more on this later), and also that UNOMP has their own version of NameCoin.

Get the source:

cd ~/source
git clone

Install all the dependencies:

sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev bsdmainutils
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev

sudo apt-get install libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler


cd ~/source/namecoin-core
./configure --with-incompatible-bdb
