Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (Ubuntu)

If you decide to use Tibbo's Ubuntu-derived distribution, the Out-of-Box-Experience (OOBE) scripts included in the Personal Package Archive (PPA) provide an easy-to-use interactive interface for setting up Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity via the WM6256 add-on module. After installing the operating system, make sure to first install and update all packages. You can do so through one simple command:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

After performing an upgrade of the PPA, you will need to reboot. To do so, just run:

sudo reboot

Now that you have the most up-to-date version of the PPA, you can run the scripts to install the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers.

The Wi-Fi configuration script can not only install the driver, but also provides a straightforward way to scan for and associate with wireless networks. To run it, just execute this command:

sudo tb_wlan_mainmenu.sh

Note: After associating with a wireless network, the system will always automatically try to connect to it when in range.

The Bluetooth configuration script simplifies installing and uninstalling the Bluetooth driver. The script also makes it easy to pair and connect the system with a Bluetooth device. To run it, just execute this command:

sudo tb_bt_mainmenu.sh
