I tried to setup a ETH miner on Linux Ubuntu 16.04.2 together with Jaxx. But it was too messy. Can someone go through step by step together with me?
I myself am on the Ethereumpool.co pool. Also, I am on Linux 16.04, the problem you said is that you can't get it together with Jaxx? So first off you need to install the Prerequisites. Open a terminal and type the following one at a time.
sudo apt-get clean sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum-qt sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cpp-ethereum
After you do that, I suggest making a note file to keep your starting command. To connect to the pool, you want to use the command
ethminer -G -F http://ethereumpool.co/?miner=[HASHRATE IN MHASH]@[ADDRESS]@[OPTIONAL RIG NAME]
Where the hash rate is the speed, the address is your Jaxx address and your rig name. So for me it looks like this:
ethminer -G -F http://ethereumpool.co/?miner=19@0x516976cE81751eBe077Ca01C57B97c9665b0e10b@LLG
Notice, no brackets. Also the -G means GPU. Remember, the address is your Jaxx address that you get from in-app. the ETH, not ETC If you have any issues comment at me.
