Tutorial: Using the Mindsensors EV3Console in Linux


If you have the Mindsensors EV3Console and you’re keen to use it on Linux, you’ll find that it is not immediately detected by the drivers built-in to Ubuntu 13.04.  Have no fear, though, it’s fairly easy to fix.  The specific distribution used here is Ubuntu 13.04.  If you’re using something else, you may need to tweak some path names and ...
