I'm new to this amazing ecoin, but a bit frustrated that I could not find any user-friendly lightweight wallet for Linux.

I have downloaded moenro-gui-linux but it takes ages to synchronize the blockchain. Hence the question.

You can use a remote node to sync your Monero blockchain, please read the following:

How can I use Monero without syncing the blockchain?


You can speed the process up by downloading the blockchain from getmonero.org (currently around 30GB).

see How to speed up initial blockchain sync

However keep in mind that it is always safer to sync the blockchain yourself
