boot up the pi with your username and password

Step 2: Go To LX Terminal

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.

And how to uninstall it???

sudo apt-get autoremove arduino

that will remove it I also suggest after the removal is done that you go and do:

sudo apt-get purge arduino

how to install other libraries on raspberry pi arduino ide
nerd7473 (author)  robomaniax6 months ago

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

CODE: SELECT ALL

cd usr/share/arduino/libaries

and then I copied and pasted the url of the download link and pasted it after:

CODE: SELECT ALL

sudo wget

I then typed

CODE: SELECT ALL

sudo unzip

and then the url

I posted this on the rpi forums just to be clear the url is that of the download link. If you want to get more help private message me

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

usr/share/arduino

How do I add libraries?
nerd7473 (author)  tzq33tdq10 months ago
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
nerd7473 (author)  tzq33tdq10 months ago
go to the files button under the lx menu and type this in the directories search box:

usr/share/arduino

when you enter it you will see several folders including the libraries folder hope I have been help
nerd7473 (author)  tzq33tdq10 months ago
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.
nerd7473 (author)  tzq33tdq10 months ago
sorry I couldn't be more help
nerd7473 (author)  tzq33tdq10 months ago
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
tzq33tdq10 months ago
Definitely should be featured... Thanks :)
nerd7473 (author)  tzq33tdq10 months ago
oh and your welcome
nerd7473 (author)  tzq33tdq10 months ago
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!
*Favorites*
nerd7473 (author)  TSJWang10 months ago
yeah it wasn't that hard to do. follow the instructions and you will be programming in no time!
TSJWang nerd747310 months ago
My question is: why is this not featured!?
nerd7473 (author)  TSJWang10 months ago
that is a good question IDK
