2015 RoboRIO/Control System Feedback

This chrome://flags/#enable-npapi and click enable will work for another year or so until Google has said they will really remove it.

We used the Wildstang part this year, worked like a charm.

Thanks 111!

I agree it seems wrong, however maybe have a look at Pipelight (http://pipelight.net/cms/installation.html). Seemed to work ok for me (admittedly, I only opened the management page and clicked around, I didn’t do any serious work with the roboRIO this year).

For convenience, Pipelight installation on Ubuntu (and derivatives):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --install-recommends pipelight-multi && sudo pipelight-plugin --update


I’ve noticed this for several years now. You need to go into the properties of the WiFi adapter on the laptop and disable all power saving options. Otherwise when the battery gets below a certain level the Wifi adapter will actually disappear from the operating system until the power cord is plugged in again.

Thanks for the pointer. I noticed in today’s email blast that AM has a product to address this as well.
