How to Install the Desktop Components (GUI) on an Ubuntu

(Updated) [Staking] Reddcoin Core client GUI wallet on a Raspberry Pi Model 3B


This thread is an update to my first Reddcoin staking tutorial that was written 7 months ago.
The reason for the update
My Reddcoin Core software crashed and became unusable. My Raspberry Pi 3B would lag and freeze, I couldn't stake anymore.
Instead of just redoing everything the same way, I wanted to see if I could improve on 3 points:
The updates
If you would like to tip me
Writing a tutorial like this takes time and effort; tips are appreciated. My Reddcoin address: RqvdnNX5MTam855Y2Vudv7yVgtXdcYaQAW.





This video shows how long it takes to start Reddcoin Core.   TL;DR:


Backup your wallet to prevent losing the RDDs in your wallet! There are two methods to backup, do both. Make new backups if you create a new receiving address!
Boot with only 1 USB drive plugged in:
Make sure only the USB drive (with the swap partition and data partition) is plugged in when you boot up your Raspberry Pi. This to make sure the swap partition (/dev/sda1) is recognized correctly.   If you boot up with multiple USB drives, Lubuntu might see the USB drive with the swap partition as the second drive (instead of the first drive), and ignore the 2 GB swap partition. If this happens, starting Reddcoin can render the Raspberry Pi unresponsive.
Connection issues If you have issues syncing the blockchain because you have 0 network connections, please follow the instructions in this thread.
Start Reddcoin Core easier
Run a shell script (.sh file), so you can start Reddcoin just by double clicking on an icon on your Desktop.
Minimization options
Adjust minimization options, so you can safely press on the X button (the close/exit button on the upper right corner).
RealVNC VNC Viewer (client) and VNC Connect (server): To remote connect to the Raspberry Pi, I use VNC Viewer ad VNC Connect from RealVNC.
Chromium as browser: The updates break Firefox, the browser crashes when you try to run it. Install another browser, Chromium, to solve this issue.
Updates / Upgrades
If Software Updater shows up and tells you that there is updated software available, do not install the updates using Software Updater. Use LXTerminal to update Lubuntu.

Brave and DuckDuckGo Partner to Improve Privacy on the Web
Brave and DuckDuckGo announced an extension of their partnership Thursday to radically improve Internet privacy. Standard browsing and search compromises user data. To combat this, Brave has integrated DuckDuckGo search within the Brave browser’s private tabs, providing users with a simple way to enhance privacy protection when searching on the web.

Brave Team Tweets:

Mark your calendars for an Ask Me Anything with @BrendanEich on Dec. 20th at 10am PT! Join to participate.
Did you know?
BasicAttentionToken You can "pin" a favorite site and decide which % it gets, regardless of how much time you spend on that site.
Is BAT a Scam? Luke responds on Twitter:
Luke Mulks: Not a scam. We work hard to make it easy for users to support creators by activating the platform. 100% opt-in. Anonymous payments with privacy protection as a core company value.
May be worth looking into PayPal's early days. They gave free money to users to onboard. It worked
The creator of JavaScript is our CEO and co-founder. Our team is 100% legit & from the top of their respective fields. We actually really care about what we're doing here. Aim to prove monetization can exist without consumer surveillance and profiling.
More BAT grants coming soon!
Brave Software: We will have more BAT grants soon, thanks for using Brave!
Luke [email protected] Worth noting that 3rd party "promises" to comply with DNT are slippery at best. 3P often disregard or workaround. Lacks enforcement w/any teeth. 3P actively lobbying against privacy protection. Brave blocks 3rd party tracking, allows for DNT as well, w/o false sense of security
Will BAT and Twitch work together? Brendan replies:
BrendanEich @Brave + @attentiontoken today enable "Patreon in the browser", pinned anonymous contributions as a percentage of your monthly budget, no censorship, fixed low fee on 30-day aggregate single txn. We <3 small donors. We'll work on standardizing over time.
BrendanEich We granted to users the first chunk (300,000) of $BAT recently, will do it again. Thanks to @upholdinc, creators get paid in fiat in regions they cover. Users fund via crypto at present; working on cc/debitcard methods. Domain/YouTube verification is blind proof-checking process.
How many people use Brave on Android?
Luke Mulks: Well over 1.5M, on Android alone. :-)
  1. We are engineering a new model, privacy first, quality over quantity.
  2. Ads separate from page content, dedicated progressive UX.
  3. Users remain anonymous, receive rev share for ads viewed.
What are the differences between ad-tech browsers and browsers owned by ad companies?
BrendanEich: Note big diffs vs ad-tech & browsers owned by ad companies: 1/ we put users first in revenue and control of data, by opt-in and revshare & settings; 2/ we pay 70% to ad slot owner, way better than today's prorgrammatic adtech.
BrendanEich: Last thing: with Uphold (we'll find more such partners but they are outstanding), user will be able to take their 70% rev-share to fiat in many regions. This requires Uphold's bank-level AML/KYC, to avoid fraud at scale. It relieves users from having to go to crypto exchanges. + 1:21 PM - Dec 13, 2017

Roaring Fans on Twitter:

  • Fan art from one of our Verified Publishers.
  • MattHill My new video on the @brave Browser and @AttentionToken explaining how these 2 products work hand in hand! … I would love any comments and advice about my video, and hopefully if you didn't know about these before i taught you something new! #Crypto#youtube 4:38 PM - Dec 10, 2017
  • boxmining Got my Free #BasicAttentionToken and got my account verified. Thanks @AttentionToken
  • Jery Thank you @brave @AttentionToken for some crypto to help pay some great people on YouTube like @[email protected] @FunhausTeam If this thing continues and advances further it could help fix/curate ads, as currently the normal way is atrocious.
  • Adam Kerpelman Switching to @brave browser will really make you realize how much tracking is going on. @THR is the worst so far 30-40 scripts blocked per page load. Bananas.
  • Cryptographer @brave isn't just reinventing advertising with @AttentionToken. Its mission aims to eliminate that fear you feel when installing an app, that perhaps your personal data/life maybe spied upon. Priceless. And to that I raise my hat. $BAT $ETH $BTC #Bitcoin
  • Georg Lackner Thx for the free BAT @brave @AttentionToken using brave now as standart browser #CoolStuff
  • Yannis Now i'm totally using @brave browser, it's gonna change the future of the internet! Bye @googlechrome it was nice to meet you.
  • Ryan I get it. And love the Brave Browser. I use it on desktop and mobile. Works great
  • Eric 'EzMrcz' Marcuz This is a web browser called @brave that provides an awesome browsing experience.
  • Even cooler? Crypto Content Creator Support (3CS coin it!) built in for things like YT channels allowing me to spend @AttentionToken to directly support channels/content I like! #Altcoins #Crypto
