Light GUI Monero Client on your Laptop/Desktop - Full chain on your Raspberry Pi - Quick tutorial

Every time I start the client on my laptop it obviously resumes the blockchain synchronisation and the fans start working at maximum speed until it finishes. Because of this, I decided to send the dirty blockchain work to my Raspberry Pi 3. Here's how I did it without synchronising from scratch on Pi.   Hope this is useful to someone else.   **Requirements:**   * Secure Desktop/laptop; * Raspberry Pi (tested on 3, not sure if it will work properly on previous versions); * A static IP on your Pi ( how to: https://elinux.org/RPi_Setting_up_a_static_IP_in_Debian ); * 50 GB free on both Pi and Desktop/Laptop (you will remove the blockchain from it afterwards); * Basic Linux command line knowledge. * If you already use Monero GUI client, please backup your wallet. Accidents happen.   **On your Laptop/Desktop**:   1. Download the latest Monero GUI client from https://getmonero.org/downloads/ 2. Open it and wait for the synchronization to finish (should be done in less than 24h if your machine is not more than 5 years old); 3. Close the client and stop daemon.   **On your Raspberry Pi** (tested on Rasbian but should work with any other similar distro):   * Add an unprivileged monero user: $ sudo adduser monero   * Change to this new user: $ sudo su monero $ cd   * Download Monero client for ARMv7: $ wget https://downloads.getmonero.org/cli/linuxarm7 -O monero.tar.gz   * Extract monero.tar.gz: $ tar -xvf monero.tar.gz $ mv monero-v0.11.0.0 monero   * Copy the blockchain over: $ rsync -axvP /where/ever/you/have/your/.bitmonero/ [email protected]:/home/monero/.bitmonero/ or zip it and copy it over in some other way   * Make sure permissions are correct: $ chown monero: -R /home/monero/.bitmonero   * Create a service so monerod starts automatically on boot. $ exit $ sudo vim /etc/systemd/system/mon...
