Install Wallet on Linux
Before you start, the team recommends that you read Getting Started if you haven't already. It's a 30-second read that will save you time.
Mantis is both a graphical wallet and a command-line client. You can download either or both.
Follow these instructions to install the Mantis wallet. If you want the client, follow the client installation instructions.
These are the prerequisites for installing Mantis wallet:
- A Java Virtual Machine (JVM) with version 1.8.x.
To check the JVM version, use
java -version. To install Java, follow these instructions. (Note that the Mantis team has not tested the wallet with JVM 1.9 or later versions)
- 4G of memory (RAM) Additional RAM is needed for the DAG file if mining is enabled.
- 250GB of disk space to ensure fast sync of the node. You will need more than that for the future growth of the chain. You should have an SSD of at least 500GB for full sync.
