I was trying to install Go-Ethereum Classic in Ubuntu(VM) using the following guide https://github.com/ethereumproject/go-ethereum I followed the steps as per the guide and all went fine till

$ go get -v github.com/ethereumproject/go-ethereum/...

the next command for installing Geth seems not working. while executing the command cursor blinked for a second and exits from execution. I checked the installation by a geth command 'help' and it returns

geth: command not found

enter image description here

I also tried installation using make and it also ended up in error enter image description here

  1. How to solve this issue?
  2. Is there any reliable source rather than https://github.com/ethereumproject/go-ethereum for the installation instructions of ethereum classic node?

  • There is no error with actual instruction, with instruction suppose to have GOPATH in the PATH variable. Commented Sep 19, 2018 at 8:26

1 Answer 1


You need add GOPATH to your PATH variable or use full path command ./HERE_IS_PATH_TO_YOUR_GO_BIN/geth.
