Installation of the Arduino IDE

Via the packagemanager

This installs an old version. On Debian 10 Buster version 2.1.0 is installed from 2016
See Install on Debian

Manual install

As far as we know there are no dependencies. So default-jre nor openjdk-11-jre is needed

Do as user

Do as root ( arduino-1.8.13-linux64 is the current version on the 18th of April 2020 )

  • aptitude install sudo
  • mv /home/user/downloads/arduino-1.8.13-linux64.tar.xz /opt
  • cd /opt
  • tar xf arduino-1.8.13-linux64.tar.xz

Run as user the, by us (for bash) modified, install script

or run the default scripts

  • /opt/arduino-1.8.13-linux64/install.sh
  • /opt/arduino-1.8.13-linux64/arduino-linux-setup.sh $USER

Now you can find the Arduion program in the Start menu under “Development”

Manually create a launch item

Make an entry for

/opt/arduino-1.8.13/arduino

in the quick launch bar or change the item if a previous version of the Arduino IDE was installed. How this is done depends on the Linux distribution.

For an Uno or Mega 2560 a symlink from /dev/ttyACM0 to /dev/ttyUSB0 (for example) might be needed so that the serial port appears in the Arduino software. See Upload and search for "On Linux, the Uno and Mega 2560". Do as root

cd /dev
ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyUSB0

If uploading of a sketch does not work have a look at Install on Debian item 5
Do as root

usermod -G tty -a user
usermod -G dialout -a user
Log off and log on again for the changes to take effect! 

Uninstall

Do as root

  • /opt/theArduinoDirectory/install.sh -u This will remove the shortcut, menu item and icons
  • cd /opt
  • rm -rf theArduinoDirectory
