### Operating Systems: Ubuntu
- Download the [official binaries](https://getmonero.org/downloads/) or compile the last source available on [Github](https://github.com/monero-project/bitmonero)
![image1](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/1.png)
![image2](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/2.png)
- Extract the files with the archive manager (same as Winzip on Windows). Note the path where the files "monerod" and "monero-wallet-cli" are
![image3](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/3.png)
![image4](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/4.png)
- You only need to do this step once : open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and install the required dependencies by typing : "*sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev libssl-dev libevent-dev libdb++-dev*". When asked, press the Y key and then Enter to continue

![image6](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/6.png)
- Open a terminal and load the path where your binaries are extracted (cf. step 2) by typing : "*cd yourPathFromStep2*"
![image7](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/7.png)
- Load monerod by typing in your terminal : "*./monerod*". Wait for the synchronization with the network (monerod is updating the blockchain you have downloaded in step 4 or is downloading it from scratch). This can take a lot of time the first time, so be patient
![image8](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/8.png)

![image11](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/11.png)
- Once monerod is synchronized with the network, open a new terminal, change the directory (cf. step 5), and launch monero-wallet-cli by typing "*./monero-wallet-cli*"
![image12](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/12.png)
- Enter the name you want for your portfolio and follow the instructions from the terminal

![image23](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/create_wallet/23.png)
- To exit monerod or monero-wallet-cli just type "*exit*" in the associated terminal
Now to access the portfolio you have just created you will have to launch monerod, wait for it to be synchronized with the network, launch monero-wallet-cli, and type the name of your portfolio and your password.

## How to obtain Monero
This is a guide to obtain your own Monero as of 20150919. This is perhaps the easiest way to purchase and hold Monero.
####Step 1: Buy Bitcoin
There are many ways to buy Bitcoin. Perhaps the easiest way is through circle.com. Once you have purchased some Bitcoin, you are ready to buy some Monero! Buying Bitcoin is straightforward. Please goto circle.com and just follow the instructions there.
####Step 2: Set up a mymonero.com account
MyMonero.com is an online wallet for Monero, maintained by Monero Core Developer Ricardo Spagni (fluffpony). It is the easiest wallet to use. Simply go to MyMonero.com and click on the "Create an Account" button.
![image1](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/01.png)
After clicking the button, you will see your private key. This key is what gives you access to your funds. Never share this key with anyone!
### WRITE DOWN THIS KEY IMMEDIATELY!
![image2](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/02.png)
Type in your private key in the box below, and click the button.
On the next page, you will see your address.
![image3](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/03.png)
Copy your address to the clipboard by highlighting the whole thing and hitting ctrl+c (or edit menu, copy), or clicking the little icon next to your address. Save your address somewhere. This is how others will send Monero to you, and what you will use to deposit Monero into your account!
#### Step 3: Buy Monero and transfer the Monero to your new address
Go to www.shapeshift.io . On the righthand side, of the screen, click icon under "Receive" to select Monero.
![image5](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/05.png)
![image6](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/06.png)
Paste your address into the field under the Monero logo. Select the "agree to terms" button, then hit "Start"
![image7](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/07.png)
In the new screen that pops up, copy the Deposit Address into your clipboard (select and hit ctrl+c or edit-copy)
![image8](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/08.png)
Go back to your circle.com page, hit the "transfer" button, and paste the Bitcoin address into the field
Enter the amount of Bitcoin you would like to spend.
![image4](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/04.png)
![image9](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/09.png)
You will get a text message verification code. Enter code and hit send.
![image10](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/10.png)
You will see the shapeshift change to "awaiting exchange"
![image11](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/11.png)
Then it will change to COMPLETE!
![image12](https://github.com/luuul/monero-site/blob/master/knowledge-base/user-guides/png/easiest_way/12.png)
After a while you will see it in your Monero account
