Downloading and installing remote.it connectd on any Linux device

I have a RaspberryShake seismometer and a RaspberryBoom infra sound recorder. They have their own subset of Raspbian. For anyone trying to install remote.it on one of these devices, please note:

sudo apt install connectd

does not work/is not available. You need to use:

sudo apt install weavedconnectd

I STRONGLY suggest that people NOT use the weavedconnectd package. It is deprecated, although it works OK with current remote.it functionality, it will never be updated.

The connectd package is only available via “apt” if you are using Raspbian Stretch. For other flavors of Raspbian, or any other Linux running on the Pi, please try:

curl -LkO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/remoteit/installer/master/scripts/auto-install.sh
chmod +x ./auto-install.sh
sudo ./auto-install.sh

Yes, that worked. Thanks Gary.
