Getting espers wallet, and synchronizing it

Download your wallet from:
//bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1434700.0 or espers.io/downloads/

Windows (full client, so only one time download needed)
//mega.nz/#!q9sDWQoY!zaKbTEUl8U_4ZDP-8CmABNEjMMA52bMgICGnn0Y9Riw or bit.ly/WinFullWallet

NOTE: full client will not always show the latest version and to not be alarmed the FULL client will update itself to the latest one on it’s own and therefore has the uploaded version updated less often.
If you are using the full client, and see old version on the client infos, dont worry. with the auto-updater you will stay on date automatically

Download the file, and unpack the launcher to your desktop or any folder.
Run the espers launcher, it should do some installation first, after that, close the launcher, and reopen it. Now hit “Check for updates” and if it says, you are on latest version, and you can run espers wallet from the launcher.

Mac

//mega.nz/#!G99EWZIZ!fI-iNFyivsufe-6VydI7Dn3nmNak2FBbJeHmlod6GIo or bit.ly/EspersMacWallet

Unpack the files to your desktop or folder.
Right click on Espers-qt.app to open the menu, hold down option key, and click open (ONLY WHEN YOU RUN THE WALLET FIRST TIME)

Ubuntu

apt update

apt -y upgrade

apt -y install build-essential libtool autotools-dev autoconf automake pkg-config libssl-dev libevent-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev libgmp-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev git fail2ban

apt -y install libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libqrencode-dev

cd /opt && rm -rf Espers

git clone //github.com/CryptoCoderz/Espers.git && cd Espers

chmod +x src/leveldb/build_detect_platform && chmod +x src/secp256k1/autogen.sh

qmake -qt=qt5 USE_UPNP=- && make

You can locate the daemon at /Espers/src file is named Espersd

Using the bootstrap

Windows: //mega.nz/#!F75mmDCJ!CfDAXnRdw2PRle1giWokuDvqZWiOc56P6gRyNB1Cb0Q or Direct link
Mac/linux: //bit.ly/BootstrapLinuxMac-677101 or Direct link

Windows:
Move the “ESP” folder in the .rar file to your C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming folder, and move your wallet.dat there (/appdata/roaming/ESP) (if you have one) and run the wallet. It will sync the remaining blocks left from the date of bootstrap

Mac:
Move the bootstrap.dat to your /Users/<your-user-name>/Library/Application Support/ESP folder and open the wallet.

Ubuntu/linux
Move the bootstrap.dat to /root/.ESP folder and run your wallet.

If you need to edit RPC username, or edit other configs, you can find the do that in

  1. windows: C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\ESP\Espers.conf
  2. mac:  /Users/<your-user-name>/Library/Application Support/ESP/Espers.conf
  3. linux: /root/.ESP/Espers.conf
