Installing Zorg on the Intel Edison

Installing Zorg should be a relatively simple process on any device. This guide will take you through the steps that are required to get your project up and running!

$ ls /dev/ | grep ttyUSB


Now connect both of the micro-USB cables to the Edison board and your computer. You should then determine what the USB device is appearing as on your computer using ls /dev/. In this example, the device is connected on /dev/ttyUSB0.

$ sudo apt-get install screen
$ sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

Begin by connecting to the Edison board using the screen command.

$ ifconfig

wlan0Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr d0:7e:35:cd:6c:43
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::d27e:35ff:fecd:6c43/64 Scope:Link

RX bytes:100747886 (100.7 MB) TX bytes:9349905 (9.3 MB)

Use the ifconfig command to determine the IP address of the device. In this example, we can see that the IP for the device is

xdk-whitelist --add

You may need to whitelist your host computer's IP Address before you will be able to connect to it through sftp.

From within the file browser, select the option Connect to Server. A window will then appear where you can enter sftp://root@ Using sftp will alow you to easily transfer files, and edit documents on the Edison.
