Install Arduino IDE with terminal

Post by sswcharlie » Thu Oct 03, 2019 8:23 pm

LM17

Have in a folder: home/charles7/Documents/ArduinoIDE/Arduino 1.8.10/arduino-1.8.10

a file called install.sh

Have tried to find directory on terminal etc. Not getting there. What LM terminal command(s) do I need to do.

Thanks

Charles

arduino IDE is in the repos, just type arduino into the software manager and that will do all the installing, unless you want to install a non repo version.

Hi all

ajgringo619 Nearly got there with your code but get this message:

" charles7@charles7-Satellite-Pro-L500 ~ $ cd /home/charles7/Documents/ArduinoIDE1.8.10/arduino-1.8.10
charles7@charles7-Satellite-Pro-L500 ~/Documents/ArduinoIDE1.8.10/arduino-1.8.10 $ ./install.sh
Adding desktop shortcut, menu item and file associations for Arduino IDE...


ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘/usr/local/bin/arduino’: Permission denied
Adding symlink failed. Hope that's OK. If not then rerun as root with sudo.
done!
charles7@charles7-Satellite-Pro-L500 ~/Documents/ArduinoIDE1.8.10/arduino-1.8.10 $ "

What would next terminal message be ?



decrepit I checked Software Manager a couple of Arduino there but nothing like v. 1.8.10
I have the .tar in a folder of its own. How do I add that to the Software Manager? d and then use software manager to install ?

Thankyou for your help.

Hi Charles,
This is beyond my expertise, but I belief you can add the "PPA" (the url of your version source) to "software sources". Whether this will work in your case I can't say, or how to do it.

But if you manage it, your version should show up in the software manager. However there could be dependency conflicts. The version of Arduino in the official repos works with the version of it's dependencies in your OS, a later version may not, and updating them could cause problems with other programs.

I guess in your terminal above do as it says,

Code: Select all

sudo install.sh
