How to view/edit/add contents of linux filesystem of SDCard on a PC?

Jump to solution

What tools or software on a PC can be used to view/edit/add the Linux filesystem on the SDcard? It will be convenient to add a Python script by modifying the file contents like Windows explorer.

Hi Teachme

You have several choices I assume from your question you are using Windows.

You can use SSH to connect and edit the files - I like to use Nano which is in AlexT's repository opkg update, opkg install nano, nano filename

Another great tool is filezilla, https://filezilla-project.org/ FileZilla - The free FTP solution that lets you copy/edit files easily

And my students who use Windows like using notepad ++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/ Notepad++ Home) which allows you to edit files on a remote system using the familiar Notepad interface.

Hi teachme,

I believe you are looking for the /media/realroot. There you can find all the contents stored in the SD card. In your computer, when you put in the SD card, a folder automatically appears with the contents of the SD card. In this folder you can view and edit the contents stored in the card.
