I am trying to install a lightning node on a linux mint OS. I have gotten to the past where I enter:

$ bitcoind -daemon

Bitcoin server starting



it seems to be running or synching? I don't even know....through searching I found that I could type this command to find out what is going on

gabe@gabe-TECRA-C50-B ~/.bitcoin $ ps aux | grep bitcoin

it seems the Daemon is running...but anyone know what the #'s mean or can tell me how much longer I can expect this to take I'd be grateful. Also I assume I cannot run "$ lightningd" command until this thing is done?
