How do I switch my Node from one PC to another pc?

I run MX-Linux bc I like the distro. However it seems it doesn't have systemd so I can not put tor connections on my LN+.
I could go to basic Ubuntu though not my favourite. 
Is there a protocol foe transferringy our node from one pc to another?  Im only new to the LN

It’s not simple. You have to copy over all files and make sure never to run both instances at the same time or it will count as a breach and you may lose funds. I suggest you don’t move your node unless you tested the procedure before with another node. Rather close your channels on the old node and start a new node.

thank you very much for your advice. I am not a stranger to losing bitcoin through mishap and carelessness. I think I may then just make a new node and start all over again :-)
