What is Raspberry Pi?
Raspberry Pi is a series of cost-effective small single-board computers developed in the UK. There are a number of applications that use Raspberry Pi to provide automation and due to the relatively low cost, it has become a popular and economical alternative to the more expensive commercial solutions.
So, this blog is all about Raspberry Pi and how you can use it to automate your LinkedIn account management with Dux-Soup.
There are many different models of the Raspberry Pi. The most popular is the B+ model and although it looks like a piece of hardware, the image below shows you the finished product, so this really is what will be delivered to your door.
How to run Dux-Soup on Raspberry Pi
Once you make a purchase, you also need a keyboard and a mouse (preferably). Raspberry Pi can run on a number of different Operating Systems with the most commonly used being Raspbian a Debian based OS optimized for the Pi. The latest model supports a wireless connection, has HDMI and a few USB ports. That means you can connect it to your PC or even TV. In this case, a PC or TV will serve as a display.
When you connect your Raspberry Pi to a PC or TV, you also need to connect to Wi-Fi as you would with any other device. Look for the Wi-Fi icon in the top right corner and enter your password!
Within the Raspian OS, you will need to download the open-source version of the Chrome browser which is called Chromium. You can find a further explanation here.
There are some amazing online resources showing you how to set up your Raspberry Pi for the first time. Depending on what version you purchase, you may need to install the Chromium browser, so here’s a quick guide on how to do this:
- Open the Raspberry Pi terminal located in the top-left (shown above)
- Simply type the following command: $ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
- If you receive any errors during installation, it’s likely you have an outdated version of Pi. In this case, run the update command: $ sudo apt-get update
- Then, repeat the first command again
- A Chromium shortcut appears when you click on the Raspberry icon, click on Programs and choose ‘Internet’.

As of March 2021, Chrome sync is disabled in Raspberian, however, once you log in to your Chrome account (using the email you used to subscribe to Dux-Soup) and you’ve downloaded the extension via Chrome Webstore, Dux-Soup will recognize your account and display the upgraded features.
Voila! You can now use Dux-Soup as usual. For optimal performance we would recommend running one Dux-Soup account per Raspberry Pi.
Utilizing multiple LinkedIn accounts at the same time is a great way to increase your outreach and focus on lead generation for business growth - and this is an area Dux-Soup have perfected! So, why don’t you give it a go and try Dux-Soup for free?
