How to Install the Peerplays Witness Node & CLI Wallet Programs Using Pre-built Gitlab Artifacts [Part 2]

This will work only on clean installs of Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 20.04

First, we’ll have to update the package repo and install a few required packages.

Second, we’ll create an artifacts directory from our home directory and then we’ll download the artifacts zipfile.

And then we’ll unzip that file.

We will then need to copy the Witness Node and CLI wallet programs to the user local bin directory.

This will allow us to run the program from any location.

We will now run the Witness Node and stop the Witness Node with Control C.

This creates a config file that will update later.
