So yesterday I posted how to create a full node for any altcoin which is good if you want to support a coin and provide a full node.  Today I will show you how to compile a QT wallet from source.  This post assumes you have already followed the first three steps in my previous post of building a full node and running Ubuntu locally attached to a monitor.  You should have the git source for your coin in your user home directory already, however you will need to add one more dependency so you can compile the QT wallet.

sudo apt-get install libqrencode-dev

Compile QT wallet

cd PayCon

Load config file into data directory

nano /home/user/.PayCon/PayCon.conf

Paste config information from ANN post of coin and save it

Launch wallet

Once you have synced up with the blockchain it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you backup your wallet to somewhere safe. The wallet for each coin is always located in their respective hidden folder under the user directory. You can the directory if you use ls -la user the home directory /home/user/

user@ubuntu:~/.PayCon$ ls -la
