Greetings from Ohio, USA

Post by Kinetics » Thu Jan 03, 2019 3:16 pm

OK, I rescued my old Lenovo ThinkPad X200 with 64bit Cinnamon and it looks to be a clean install. New to Linux but reading like mad. After reading the user
guide, I decided to install CODE::BLOCKS via the software manager (to ensure all dependencies are included). Install looked good but cannot run the Hello World example - compile & run problems, CB can't find include files, compiler, etc. Disappointed but undeterred. Stay tuned.....

Welcome aboard, Kinetics!

If you plan to do any compiling, you will want to install build-essential.

Tx for suggestions. Got it working. Needed to install Xterm as one fix. Surprised it wasn't on the dependency list of Software Manager but I suspect most folks already have it installed.

Now working on an open IDE configuration for programming ARM processors. Using Warren Gay's book, "Beginning STM32". Lots of questions here but trying to do homework before nagging forum.

Cheers.

Thanks, guys. Will try to be low maintenance.

I'm retired from half a century of hardware design, learned Atmel AVR programming and now on to ARM processors via Linux. Great stuff!
