Installing the Arduino IDE on the Raspberry Pi

Installing the Arduino IDE on the Raspberry Pi allows you to program your Arduino fro the Pi. The normal instructions require you to use apt- get, but this installs an old version. Whitewitch has uploaded a script on GitHub to upload the latest Arduino IDE (August 2014).

Once you have finished installation you are asked if you want to add a desktop shortcut, the Arduino Is connected to the Raspberry Pi via the USB lead. I found that i had to set the port to /dev/ttyACMO in the Tools/Serial Port tab. To try the system out compile and upload Blink.

Many thanks to whitewitch for this.
