Nothing worked, did everything told in that tutorial, there is no x86 folder included in the package anymore, I already saw that tutorial, which is why I asked here.

Look, you really look very confused about your system. This software have 2 versions, x86 and amd64.

Take a deep read there and you'll notice "(if i386)" and "(If amd64)". It's one OR other, not the both. I guess you're in a amd64 system, so stick with instructions marked "(If amd64)" and jump the marked as "(If i386)".

If installed correctly, than:
cd x86
(if 32bit) or
cd x64
(if 64bit).

where is the x86? that tutorial you posted is 3 years old, the package doesn't has x86 inside now, download it and see for yourself.

For that software, download this link:
https://github.com/iotaledger/wallet/releases/download/v2.5.6/iota_2.5.6_amd64.deb

Than install it using your preferred package manager (synaptics).

Follow this guide if any doubt surface:

Keep in mind that your 32bit installation won't work with amd64 packages, you might need to reinstall a 64bit version of sparky on your computer.

In a terminal emulator:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt install wine

Lia

After installing WINE just download the windows EXE then open WINE WRAPPER located in WINE Config section to run the Windows EXE. All the features of the wallet appear to work (on my SparkyKDE 64) and according to the website it may be the recommended up to date version.

An even simpler method to run a bitcoin wallet is via Chrome Webstore....just google. I haven't trialled the results, but it is another option.
