The bitcoin is on an all time high at the moment, that's why i finally decided to fool around with it. But notice that mining with CPU's is NOT cost-effective, if you want to earn some coins, you have to mine with one or more GPU's. And don't mine alone, not worth it until you have a lot of computational power, join a miner pool instead.
Anyway, here are the simple steps to run a CPU Miner on Debian or Ubuntu
Also, i am accepting bitcoins, if you like to donate for whatever reason :): 1BUq7ijvVedTgG7xhKDgTMd6t3JdDqsH4i
