Moving homeassitant from RaspberryPi to a core installation on a laptop

Hi. New guy here.
I have been running HA on a rapsberryPi 3+ for a few weeks but it’s rapidly becoming an issue - keeps rebooting etc.
I have a laptop that I don’t use that I have installed Ubuntu 20.04 on and I want to run HA on it. I have followed the instructions in but before I start HA on this machine I want to import all the settings from my current Pi install.

Is the easiest way to do this simply to extract the config file off of the SD card in the Pi and copy it to the config directory on the new machine? Or am I being too simplistic?

You need to copy the whole /config directory, including the hidden files and directories in it.
