Re: Is there any way to sync to Linux

You  can connect to it over wifi as a Windows (samba) share. Open up the playbook config app go to Storage and Sharing turn file sharing and wifi sharing on. Go to About -> Network dropdown and find your playbook IP address.


In linux then connect to a windows share in the normal way (if the distro uses Gnome then open a file browser and file->connect to server put in the ip address as the hostname, the username is playbook and the password you assigned. Tada.
