chip updates: connecting the controller to chip via SSH [updates]

Updated: Apr 22, 2020

So we found this tutorial online: https://www.maketecheasier.com/setup-bluetooth-in-linux/ this will allow us to connect the controller to Bluetooth without having to connect a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and the rest of the world.


We're going to essentially follow that tutorial exactly. I think we also want to remove the current connected joystick and only use the new one?


Actually we're using this tutorial: https://docs.ubuntu.com/core/en/stacks/bluetooth/bluez/docs/reference/pairing/outbound


We're going to first FORGET all xbox controllers and then re-pair them. Remove devices like this: https://askubuntu.com/questions/758586/how-to-unpair-bluetooth-device-from-the-command-line


Now we get to pairing.


Okay so this isn't working. I think that's because we are using an xbox controller. I don't know why they're so finicky but I think we'll just connect a monitor to the robot. :( Sad. Let's uninstall all the junk we just installed for kicks.


*we'll do it later
