I am using debain on wsl and I want to install ethereum and solidity for blockchain development but I am not able to find an exact way to do it.


Chain hammer uses a geth and solc as dependencies on Debian. You can use borrow parts of the installation script to help you.

Alternatively, these instructions should work:


To install just Solidity:

wget https://github.com/ethereum/solidity/releases/download/v0.5.13/solc-static-linux
chmod 755 solc-static-linux 
sudo mv solc-static-linux /usr/local/bin
sudo ln -s -f /usr/local/bin/solc-static-linux /usr/local/bin/solc
solc --version

  • @NeelModi I would just copy the files and paste them and execute them like that – Samuel Dare Dec 9 '19 at 9:49
