Alpha on Ubuntu

I’m trying something new (for me) and attempting to get the Alpha network running on an Ubuntu 16.04 machine.

I found these instructions and followed them without any errors:

but . … . how do I actually launch the Launcher? Or, am I missing something?

Ah on ubuntu the app name is safe_launcher (underscore)

That did it - Thanks!

Now for the Demo App - IS that launched from within the Launcher, or seperately from the command line?.

That is separate as well also uses underscores in local app name.

Yes, that’s not very user friendly. The necessary file for not needing the cli is in the source code. Related issue: https://github.com/maidsafe/safe_launcher/issues/263
