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.
