Following these steps you can install and run Iguana on Ubuntu Linux. This has been tested on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus).

1 Install Dependencies

Enter the following in your terminal to install the dependencies required to build and run Iguana:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential git cmake libcurl4-openssl-dev

Install also the latest version of nanomsg:

git clone
cd nanomsg; mkdir build; cd build; cmake ..
cmake --build .
ctest -C Debug .
sudo cmake --build . --target install
sudo ldconfig

2 Download Iguana

Copy the Iguana repository in your machine;

git clone

3 Build Iguana

Compile the Iguana source.

cd SuperNET/iguana
checkout beta

Once the Iguana executable is built, you can start it from your current directory location with

../agents/iguana &

You can also use screen or your favorite process manager. The following entry in the log,

>>>>>>>>>> iguana_rpcloop bind sock.4 iguana API enabled <<<<<<<<<

means Iguana is now initialized, and the SuperNET API page can be accessed at http://localhost:7778. If you intend to use Iguana as Bitcoin client, read more about how to run Iguana.
