I work on Linux and I found that there is very little around on how to use the NXT Mindstorm by LEGO with BlueTooth on Linux, so I started writing my own set of tools. I have finished a first version of a Program to interact with NXT and a group of functions to do various tasks.
It’s called nxtrc (NXT Remote Command) and the Help that tells you what it can do is this:
It wasn’t easy as BlueTooth support with linux is not well documented but with the Bluez utilities and some info I found on the net I was able to communicate with the NXT.I wrote a short intro on how to do that,it’s obsolete now but you can find it here.
With this and the excellent NXC compiler by John Hansen I am having a lot of fun with Linux and the NXT

Please put NXT or NXTRC somewhere in the subject.
