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: ); * 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 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 -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...
