Adding the repository directly

You can add our PPA to your repository list, this way Aseba will update automatically depending on how you have configured the software update on your Ubuntu installation.

In a command line, type the following instructions:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stephane.magnenat/`lsb_release -c -s`
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install aseba

Note that sudo will ask you your password. For more information about using PPA, see the Ubuntu official documentation.

Troubleshooting

I see the Thymio II in the target selection window, but connect always fails

Maybe you are not in the dialout group, which is necessary to allow you access to serial devices such as Thymio II. To add yourself in this group, use:

sudo adduser $USER dialout

or:

sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER
newgrp dialout

depending on your distribution.
