Not really. Because of the nature of frontends, there is no way around "tinkering" with it if it's any good. Good frontends work with all kinds of different software/hardware, and as such needs to be set up to work with it properly. If you get snagged, there's a community of many to help you here. You just have to ask the questions. (, thought of The Matrix scene, "I can only show you the door, you're the one that has to walk through it")
You have a lot of work and "fun" ahead of you.
If you're looking for no headache, buy a pre-built unit and be done with it.
