Linux and Mindstorms EV3

Postby webmanoffesto » 09 Sep 2016, 15:17

I just picked up a Lego Mindstorms EV3 set today. I use Linux on my home computers. How do I get Linux to communicate with Mindstorms. I found this online http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Lego/ but it seems old and a bit difficult to follow. Please help me get this working.

I also saw "Programming LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 from the browser with Python and ev3dev" https://mindboards.org/ucp.php?mode=log ... ab01d17118 that may be a way to communicate with the Mindstorms. What do you think?

I guess I may not be able to use a drag and drop programming interface, but maybe that's okay.

So far I've downloaded and burned the correct ev3dev image to the MicroSD card. I got it running on the brick. I've successfully SSH'ed into the brick. Next I'll try to give the brick access to the internet via the WiFi dongle I put in. And then I'll try some programming in Python.
