I have not been following this discussion but that made me giggle
what is funny about that?
hidden folders usualy are not visible by default, but by checking the filemgr option "show also hidden folders" they can be made visible.

But back to the topic:

thank you, I can't remember how I once installed Arduino IDE on my Pi or if I altered a prior installation,  I once followed some instructions I found in the web (which I do not remember exactly).

Anyway, there is no hidden folder visible.

Is there meanwhile a working apt-get install version?
or just these commands I found here in this forum?

wget http://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz
tar -x -f arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz

will that install automatically also the hidden folder?
if yes, can it be simply deleted, or do I have to change entries in preferences as well?

After that I assume that I'll just have to copy my old portable folde into the new 1.8.8 folder like for Windows,  correct?

Because by definition a hidden folder is not visible.  There may well be a way to make it visible but then, of course, it is not hidden is it ?
Please do not send me PMs asking for help.  Post in the forum then everyone will benefit from seeing the questions and answers.

that is utterly nonsense and quibbling. Hidden is != Invisible, hidden is like "obscured". A hidden folder is not visible by default file manager display settings, but can be shown up by optional display settings.

No. Please don't use a package manager to install the Arduino IDE. You will end up with an outdated IDE version that may have been modified in unspecified ways by a 3rd party.

wget http://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz
tar -x -f arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz

will that install automatically also the hidden folder?
No. The hidden folder is created the first time you start the Arduino IDE without the "portable" subfolder. If you install the Arduino IDE with the above commands, and then create the "portable" before the first time you run the Arduino IDE, the hidden folder will never be created (because the portable folder is used instead).

After that I assume that I'll just have to copy my old portable folde into the new 1.8.8 folder like for Windows,  correct?
Correct.

thank you, it works fine now!
(edit: just the location of the Sketch folder had to be added manually to the preferences)

You're welcome. I'm glad if I was able to be of assistance. Enjoy!

ARDUINO 1.8.9 2019.03.15

[ide]
* New target! ARM64 boards are now fully supported (Nvidia Jetson and RaspberryPi3 with 64bit operating system)
* Fix UTF8 related bugs on Windows
* Fixed: can now compile again using OpenJDK (removed dependency on JavaFx)
* Fixed: only use touchBar on OSX 10.12 or higher
* PluggableDiscovery: easily add your own discoverer and make it available in Boards/Port menu (thanks @PaulStoffregen for the idea and the initial implementation)
* LibManager: reduce slowdown when searching
* Fixed: ensure a sketch line is visible when it contains an error and must be highlighted
* Linux: the installer now tries to install a symlink is /usr/local/bin (this doesn't affect usual non-systemwide installation) Thanks @2E0PGS

[wifi-updater]
* Fix firmware upgrade not being available for 3rd party WINC boards

[arduino-builder]
* Use lexicographic distance as last chance to spot the right library (if every other tecnique failed)
* Fix some prototypes being inserted in the middle of a function
