System Settings

To set up your SageTea Edge, configure WiFi connectivity by entering the necessary credentials in the WiFi settings menu, and pair it with Bluetooth devices by activating Bluetooth and following the on-screen prompts. For cellular connectivity, input the correct APN settings, typically found in the cellular or network settings menu, especially if you are using Public Mobile.

Linux users

A prominent feature of SageTea Edge is the Linux Terminal. To access it, simply click the orange button on the toolbar from the main screen, then select Terminal. To enter the terminal, use the passcode "0000," which also serves as your SageTea Edge's PIN. Once inside the terminal, you can type "sudo su" and enter "0000" again to obtain root access, granting you full control over the Linux operating system. However, exercise caution at this stage, as root access entails significant system-level privileges.

Mouse & Keyboard

SageTea Edge seamlessly integrates with USB mouse and keyboard peripherals, providing an enhanced user experience. To ensure an uninterrupted power supply while using these peripherals, it is recommended to utilize a USB hub with Power Delivery. This setup proves particularly beneficial when working with the Linux Terminal, enabling efficient navigation and productivity. Additionally, setting up SSH (Secure Shell) access to your SageTea Edge is highly recommended, allowing you to remotely interact with it like a Linux server. Configuring passwordless SSH further enhances convenience and security. By incorporating a USB hub with Power Delivery, connecting a mouse and keyboard, and establishing passwordless SSH access, you can unlock the full potential of your SageTea Edge and streamline your workflow.
