Download and Digital Software Verification[edit]

Perform these steps inside Whonix-Workstation (Qubes-Whonix: anon-whonix App Qube).



gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0xCAE1092AD3553FFD21C05DE36FC4C9F7F1BE8FEA


gpg --fingerprint 0xCAE1092AD3553FFD21C05DE36FC4C9F7F1BE8FEA

scurl-download --tlsv1.2 https://electrum-ltc.org/download/electrum-ltc-


gpg --verify electrum-ltc-

If the file is verified successfully, the output will include Good signature, which is the most important thing to check.

gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.

This message does not alter the validity of the signature related to the downloaded key. Rather, this warning refers to the level of trust placed in the Whonix signing key and the web of trust. To remove this warning, the Whonix signing key must be personally signed with your own key.


chmod +x ~/electrum-ltc-


mkdir --parents ~/bin


mv electrum-ltc- ~/bin/electrum-ltc

Configure Electrum-LTC - Debian based Offline Computer[edit]

Should not be needed since offline computer but useful anyhow just in case.

Connect only to one server (own server) instead of any third party servers.

~/bin/electrum-ltc --offline setconfig oneserver true

Connect to own local server.

~/bin/electrum-ltc --offline setconfig server

Avoid auto connecting to third party servers (and avoid Electrum-LTC first start wizard asking to).

~/bin/electrum-ltc --offline setconfig auto_connect false

Add a Electrum-LTC Start Menu Entry - Debian based Offline Computer[edit]

Creating a Electrum-LTC start menu entry.

This step is optional.

1. Create folder ~/.local/share/applications.

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications

2. Open file ~/.local/share/applications/electrum-ltc.desktop in a text editor of your choice as a regular, non-root user.

If you are using a graphical environment, run. mousepad ~/.local/share/applications/electrum-ltc.desktop

If you are using a terminal, run. nano ~/.local/share/applications/electrum-ltc.desktop

3. Paste the following contents.

[Desktop Entry] Name=Electrum-LTC Comment=electrum-ltc Exec=bash -c '~/bin/electrum-ltc --oneserver --server' Terminal=false Type=Application Icon=money-manager-ex StartupWMClass=litecoin MimeType=x-scheme-handler/litecoin; Categories=Finance;

4. Save.

5. Done.

The Electrum-LTC start menu entry available should be available.
