Need a little clarification on the full litecoin client on Ubuntu.
If I run the litecoin full client on Ubuntu, is that the same thing as mining?
Or even with the full client, I would still need to setup an account with say minergate and install the cpuminer software and run the appropriate batchfile to mine? I have very small experience with setting up a miner - played with zcash on one of my computers. Just having some fun right now. When I downloaded the litecoin full client onto Ubuntu, although it hasn’t fully updated it’s wallet yet - I got to thinking. Or am I getting confused. Is running litecoin full client considered mining or I definitely have to run something else in addition to that to mine.
