Getting Started

  1. If you used the auto installer script a crontab entry was made to auto-start connection at every reboot. This can be disabled by opening terminal, running crontab -e, and then removing the entry.
  2. If you installed the software manually, customize the start_robot script in /runmyrobot/scripts to streamline starting everything up.
