Setup Turtlebot2 with a new laptop


#1

Hi, I found a very old Turtlebot2 without it’s netbook and I am thinking of playing around with it. The problem is I cannot figure out how to setup my laptop to run as the ‘netbook’ on the mobile turtlebot2. Can anyone just point me to the right tutorial or documentation?
