I know that in older distributions there was a package called "pyrocket" that could be used to control this little toys from Ubuntu.

Does anyone know any current package that can be installed on Ubuntu 16.04?

enter image description here


It is not on main repos anymore, but development is (somehow) still alive (check out its github repo).

To use it with Ubuntu, there is a ppa available.

Use sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zarquon42/ppa to add the ppa. Xenial (16.04) its ok, but there is no Yakkety (16.10) package available at the moment.

Then sudo apt update && sudo apt install pyrocket to cleanly install pyrocket.

Hope it helps.
