Installing Robot Coding Software
  1. Enter the address below into the address bar of your web browser.
    http://hamster.school
  2. Select the Download menu and download the installation file for the OS of your PC.
  3. Open a terminal and navigate to the folder where you downloaded the tar.gz file.
  4. Unzip the tar.gz file by typing the following command in the terminal.
  5. Linux 32-bit:
    tar xvfzp RobotCoding-linux32-v1.6.4.tar.gz
    Linux 64-bit:
    tar xvfzp RobotCoding-linux64-v1.6.4.tar.gz

  6. Make sure the RobotCoding folder is created.
  7. Install the device driver. If you have already installed the device driver, you do not need to reinstall it.
  8. (1) Open a terminal and log in as root.

    (2) Navigate to the drivers folder inside the RobotCoding folder.

    (3) Without plugging the USB dongle into the USB port of the PC, run the shell script by typing the following command in the terminal.
