Connecting to BBB with TRAMP
Now that we've configured SSH, we will now have an easier time connecting to BBB with
TRAMP and Emacs. Emacs has a built-in directory editor called dired , which can be in-
voked by pressing C-x d . We want to open dired on the BBB to view the remote files.
Press C-x d and then enter the following for the directory: /ssh:bbb:/home/debian .
A screen similar to the following should immediately open, which will show you the con-
tents of the home directory:
All the basic Emacs navigation commands work in dired , so you can navigate the direct-
ory and press enter to open a file or another directory. The ^ key will navigate you to the
parent directory. You can also click on the directories or files to open them.
