If you are ArchLinux user, you can find Peercoin packages in AUR.

Or you can use AUR helper like yaourt to automate the process for you.

yaourt -S peercoin-qt

Debian 8.0

Open the terminal as root and paste following commands:

Add keys

wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:peerchemist/Debian_8.0/Release.key
apt-key add - < Release.key

Add repository:

echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/peerchemist/Debian_8.0/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ppcoin.list

Update and install:

apt-get update && apt-get install ppcoin

Ubuntu 15.10

Important: Only Ubuntu 15.10 and above are supported

Open the terminal and paste following commands:

Add key:

wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:peerchemist/xUbuntu_15.10/Release.key
sudo apt-key add - < Release.key

Add repository:

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/peerchemist/xUbuntu_15.10/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ppcoin.list"

Update and install:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ppcoin

Configuration

Note: Optional if you only use PPCoin-Qt.

Create ppcoin.conf in the wallet directory.

Enable RPC query capabilities with PPCoin-Qt

Change or add server=1 to ppcoin.conf.

Sample PPCoin configuration

You have to set rpcpassword to something secure. If you run ppcoind without setting it you will get a computer generated password.

            # ppcoin.conf configuration file. Lines beginning with # are comments.

            ### Network-related settings

            # Run on the test network instead of the production PPCoin network
            #testnet=0

            # Connect via a SOCKS4 proxy (default: none)
            #proxy=127.0.0.1:9050

            # Accept incoming connections
            #listen=1

            # Enable UPnP negotiation with router/firewall to accept incoming connections
            #upnp=1

            ##           Quick Primer on 'addnode' vs 'connect'            ##
            ##                                                             ##
            ##  Let's say for instance you use 'addnode=4.2.2.4'.          ##
            ##                                                             ##
            ##  'addnode' will connect you to and tell you about the       ##
            ##    nodes connected to 4.2.2.4.  In addition it will tell    ##
            ##    the other nodes connected to it that you exist so        ##
            ##    they can connect to you.                                 ##
            ##  'connect' will not do the above when you 'connect' to it.  ##
            ##    It will *only* connect you to 4.2.2.4 and no one else.   ##
            ##                                                             ##
            ##  So if you're behind a firewall, or have other problems     ##
            ##  finding nodes, add some using 'addnode'.                   ##
            ##                                                             ##
            ##  If you want to stay private, use 'connect' to only         ##
            ##  connect to "trusted" nodes.                                ##
            ##                                                             ##
            ##  If you run multiple nodes on a LAN, there's no need for    ##
            ##  all of them to open lots of connections.  Instead          ##
            ##  'connect' them all to one node that is port forwarded      ##
            ##  and has lots of connections.                               ##
            ##                                                             ##
            ##            Thanks goes to [Noodle] on Freenode.             ##
