Hi Ian,

I have purchased a Wedo kit and installed the latest version of Turtle
Blocks-107, just one question: you mention a "usb" folder but at the
link below I only saw a "udev" folder, is that the one you mean?

Also is the best way to copy these files with the command line? Do I
need to set any permissions?
