Computer Wallet. Once you click the button you will be presented with the 3 choices of download
MacOS Download and
Linux Download. For the purposes of this tutorial, we want to select the
Linux Download option.
Once you click on the text labelled
Linux download, a pop-up will appear which will give you another 3 options. These options let you choose the location you would like to download the file from. The 3 options in this case are
Github. For this tutorial we are going to select the first option,

Desktop. On Linux we use the simple
Archive Manager tool to unzip the files and place them into a folder inside your home directory called
nuls as below:

cd ~. Now you are in your home folder, you need to type
cd nuls/bin to enter the newly downloaded nuls wallet, and finally
./start.sh to start the wallet. The 3 commands can be seen in the terminal below:
