Running the stand alone in Ubuntu

This is an adoption of Shawn's guide for Ubuntu found here.

First a person will need to have the latest form of Java installed.  Taking the information from this guide, please open terminal and follow these steps.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer -y

For other versions of Linux you can try this tutorial too.

After Java is installed the please go to and download the latest version of NEM.  The file will probably be more than 30M. 

Unpack the file to your desktop. 

Open terminal and please enter these commands

cd Desktop/package

If everything goes well you will see NEM start up.
