I run Ubuntu 12.X   and this site had a very simple set of commands to make the Bitmessage (please look it up).   Bitmessage is a distributed system like BitCoin, but used decentralized, encrypted e-mail and group mailings.

Here is the URL with directions for Linux users:

http://www.unixmen.com/send-encrypted-messages-with-bitmessage/

The only changes for me, was instead of going to root, I used 'sudo', which is you are an Ubuntu user, you know is a way to do things without leaving root open.  My Ubuntu also did not have 'git' , so I downloaded that as well.

In short - it all worked, including exchanges with a buddy using this system.


No need for Windoze!


Waa-Hoo!

Very interesting Ray, thank you.

I prefer using Linux Mint 13 now, which incidentally is based on Ubuntu, because Ubuntu has become a bit bloated and it's graphical interface is also trying to be Window$ 8...
