I’m a Linux n00b. I run Ubuntu on my desktop.
I installed Bitcoin, synced (took a couple days) and reindexed (took another few days).
I modified bitcoin.conf as described - https://www.dropbox.com/s/7mx7uphhf12fmga/counterparty-lib-cheatsheet_9.51.3.pdf
I installed counterparty-cli.
sudo pip3 install counterparty-cli did not work for me.
sudo pip3 install --no-use-wheel counterparty-cli worked - https://github.com/CounterpartyXCP/counterparty-lib/issues/674
counterparty-server bootstrap executes okay.
counterparty-server start fails

It stays here for more than an hour, then:

EDIT : First I did not use btcdrak’s version. Then I downloaded newest btcdrak tar.gz for linux 64-bit. I copied the bin folder over to my existing .bitcoin folder. Now I’ve run
$ ~/.bitcoin/bin/bitcoin-qt and finished new reindexing.
It does not change anything. I still don’t get past ‘Connecting to database.’
UPDATE : I deleted the fhree files at ‘./local/share/counterparty’ and then tried
counterparty-server bootstrap followed by `counterparty-server start. As before, I could not connect to DB.
Then I deleted the DB files again. Without first bootstrapping I ran `counterparty-server start’. It connects to the DB now (actually creates a new DB) amd processes blocks. But it works VERY SLOW. Each block takes around 20 seconds! It will take weeks unless it speeds up
