this is an instructable on how to make the raspberry pi have arduino IDE on the desktop. note you will need an internet connection.

Step 1: Boot Up And Log In

boot up the pi with your username and password

Step 2: Go To LX Terminal

go to the LX terminal and type in the code in the next step.

Step 3: Type In Code

type in the following code:

sudo apt-get install arduino

press enter and wait a good while until it is downloaded

Step 4: Move IDE To Desktop

go to the LX menu in the bottom of the screen it is sort of like the start menu on Windows but its Linux. Adding the icon to the desktop isn't hard just go into the menu and you should see a "Electronics button" right click it and choose add to desktop.

Step 5: Opening IDE And A Sketch

open a sketch in the arduino program and upload it to your arduino it should have the same bars as Windows but different i.e. file, edit, and so on. look for example in the file tab and you will find some menus. Look for basics and click fade or blink. choose the arrow pointing right to upload you must have your arduino plugged into the pi via the usb.

Step 6: Enjoy

enjoy and have fun I hope I have inspired you to do your own projects with a raspberry pi and arduino.
<p>Can you install custom libraries?</p>
<p>thank you for you information but i have a question, i want to work with ARDUINO DUE tarjet but i don&acute;t find this tarjet in the list &quot;board&quot; on the Arduino IDE. Do you know how i find Arduino DUE in the list &quot;board&quot; on the Arduino IDE? </p>
<p>Wow.. THANK YOU..</p><p>That was THE most useful post I have ever come across on the web !! I have spent all day trying to figure out how to get to my ELEVEN board from my Pi. This did it.</p><p>ianm</p>
glad it helped you
<p>Hi,</p><p>Thanks for your info. I was on the misunderstanding that the RaspberryPi was not able to flash sketches to the Arduino. I used to be able to do it 6 months or so ago using an old Desktop, running Windows XP, until that gave up the ghost</p><p>Having spent I do not know how many hours trying to connect a laptop with Windows 8.1 &amp; more recently Windows 10 with Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Micro for flashing and failing I suddenly chanced on your Blog. Within 20 minutes, including time failing with an Arduino Micro &amp; my hopes falling, I managed to flash Blink with Print added to a Mega 2560 &amp; it worked first time.</p><p>Do you know which Board I should select for a Micro as it is not in the list?</p><p>Am in the land of BLISS so will now try to get the diy 3D Printer working - fingers crossed.</p><p>I suspect I will spend plenty of time perusing instructables.com as well.</p><p>Yours, Walter</p>
I don't have any advice on boards sorry...
And how to uninstall it???
sudo apt-get autoremove arduino<p>that will remove it I also suggest after the removal is done that you go and do:</p>sudo apt-get purge arduino
how to install other libraries on raspberry pi arduino ide
<p>I successfully moved the files from github they were for adafruit neopixel but there were errors when I went to verify the code in the program does anyone have an idea as to why the files had messed up code? p.s. the font was small because I changed the resolution, so it was hard to see</p><p>CODE: SELECT ALL</p><p>cd usr/share/arduino/libaries</p><p>and then I copied and pasted the url of the download link and pasted it after:</p><p>CODE: SELECT ALL</p><p>sudo wget</p><p>I then typed</p><p>CODE: SELECT ALL</p><p>sudo unzip</p><p>and then the url</p>

If you want to get more help private message me</strong></p>
<p>I could locate it but could never figure out how to get it to work properly I actually forgot maybe the raspberry pi forums or google could help you but I seriously forgot how to do it I think I used directories and the terminal but honestly I can't remember</p><p>usr/share/arduino</p>
how to install other libraries on raspberry pi arduino ide
The Raspberry pi is a great computer for beginners or experts I recommend it

I may post on how to get an OS on your SD card instead of adding to your shopping list
How do I add libraries?
I just tried to add the neopixel library from adafruit on the pi and ran into a snag it wont let me move any of the items in the folder
go to the files button under the lx menu and type this in the directories search box: <br> <br>usr/share/arduino <br> <br>when you enter it you will see several folders including the libraries folder hope I have been help
I will try to figure this out and get back to you it should be similar to windows or mac but I would look around for a while to figure it out.
sorry I couldn't be more help
I never knew how to do that on Arduino IDE I always had trouble with that I will have to check when I get home
Definitely should be featured... Thanks :)
oh and your welcome
yes it should but I have no idea why it isnt
I've been following another set of instructions for a while and wasted several hours installing the java support, avrdude, etc. I will try this: looks a lot simpler! <br>*Favorites*
yeah it wasn't that hard to do. follow the instructions and you will be programming in no time!
My question is: why is this not featured!? <br>
that is a good question IDK
feel free to comment
