Software[edit]

  • Arduino Integrated Development Environment

http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/software

  • On Ubuntu 12.04, open terminal with ctrl + alt + T then cd FOLDERNAME until you reach the folder that contains the "arduino" file, then sudo ./arduino to open the arduino IDE as a super user (you need to be a super user else the Tools>Serial Port will be greyed out).

Compatibilizing Arduino IDE for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS[edit]

To run Arduino IDE successfully, you need to make sure that certain software is installed on your computer. For newer versions of Ubuntu, there are guides within the Arduino website.

  • The following steps are a summary of the information in this webpage:

  • Restart your computer

Upload Steps[edit]

  • Using the computer, open the Arduino Integrated Development Environment
  • Within the Arduino IDE, click File > Open (a search box should pop up)
  • Within the Arduino IDE Search Box, navigate to and click on the .ino file in which the desired code exists, then click Open
  • Within the Arduino IDE, click Compile (if compiling failed, fix the code)
  • Connect the computer to the Arduino microcontroller via the USB cable
  • Within the Arduino IDE, click Tools > Board and select the Arduino board that you are using (ex. Arduin Uno)
  • Within the Arduino IDE, click Tools > Serial Port and select the serial port
  • Within the Arduino IDE, click Upload and wait for upload completion
  • Disconnect the USB cable from the Arduino microcontroller OR if you want to see messages from the Arduino board, click Tools > Serial Monitor and do not disconnect the USB cable.
