I leave you a Linux script to run mBlock in Linux, I have tested it in Ubuntu 16.04. These are the steps to run mBlock under Linux with Wine:
- Install wine on Linux. Install mBlock for Windows in Linux
- Download the script: mblock_wine.sh
- Plug mBot to computer via USB
- Run script with sudo: sudo ./mblock_wine.sh
Now you should be able to connect to mBot with mBlock via USB.
