Having problem installing z cash wallet, new to Linux

I am trying to install the zcash wallet, everything was going well then it tells me welcome to the mining pool? so somewhere somehow I mad a mistake, I think I am pretty dine with the wallet exceot fir the addresses and keys, I could really use some help.

(hate to admit this, but I have a brain injury and have a very difficult time understanding what I am reading, it is very frustrating, to once know how to do something and after a accident to struggle with basic things at times) any advice would be helpfulll thank you…

Documentation is very thin there is little to no official information made available on the latest release upgrading or backing up etc. I found this on the github release page v1.0.2 and on z.cash’s home page a link titled release 1.01 that linked to a V1.0 guide but thats about it .

You might find an outdated beta guide in the Zcash Wiki or some well write sales blurb in a blog post .

good luck

I started over with a new install, just finished the directory, now I am stuck on the configuratoin
