By default, ubuntu MATE comes with ssh installed but disabled. So there are a few steps to setup ssh to your raspberry pi.

  1. ensure that openssh-server is installed with sudo apt install openssh-server

  2. check ssh status with sudo systemctl status ssh

  4. go to settings -> login window and set automatic login to your robot's username.
