Just curious how 1.8.1 knows if your libraries are out of date? Is there a library repository somewhere?
This feature is much needed btw :thump

I haven't updated since 1.6.1.
You really should update your IDE. There are many new features and fixes since then.
The library manager was added in 1.6.2 and is a fantastic new feature.

Just a note, updatable library notifications only happen for libraries that have been added to the Library Manager database so if you manually install a library you may still want to check back where you got it from occasionally to see if there have been updates.

IMO, the platformio system handles Arduino libraries much better.

Im getting an error message on the latest release 64 bit
Code: [Select]
libtinfo.so.5 missing
Anybody else getting this ? I'm running it on Puppy Fatdog64 so guessing I've got to install it from somewhere?

b-james

Bit of googling this site gave me

Create a symbolic link
ln -s /usr/lib/libncurses.so.5 /usr/lib/libtinfo.so.5

In my case it was
ln -s /lib64/libncursesw.so.5 /lib64/libtinfo.so.5

Seems to have fixed it

I am UNABLE to run the built IDE on FreeBSD 11.  The reason:  liblistSerialsj references a non-existent library libc.so.6 (if I had that library on my system, it would probably NOT be binary-compatible with whatever similarly-named library existed on the system that the shared lib was built on).

I have tried "somewhat desperately" to find source for this library.  it does NOT exist online.

What is so super-secret that 'generally insignificant' shared libs _LIKE_ liblistSerialsj.so need to be kept CLOSED SOURCE like this?  Please, OPEN SOURCE ALL OF THE LIBRARIES AND TOOLS!  At the very least, a link pointing to where their source is would be nice!

I posted a similar issue over on github, too.  Please FIX THIS PROBLEM.  It shouldn't take much effort.  Just POST THE SOURCE that you used when you built it.  Ok?  I'll take care of actually building the thing on MY end.

Keep in mind, that when there's a shared library reference like this, there is NO! GUARANTEE! that the ABI will match between Debian's 'libc.so.6' or Fedora's "libc.so.6" or Slackware's "libc.so.6" assuming they even EXIST on those systems.  I can definitely say that FreeBSD's "libc.so.7" isn't necessarily going to work, even if I symlink'ed it to 'libc.so.6' just to try and get the IDE to work.  That's because some of the libc functions _DIFFER_ between FreeBSD and your typical Linux distro.  Additionally, they're compiled using 'clang', and not gcc.

One of the advantages to a "build from source" system (like FreeBSD) is STABILITY.  NOT having potential "ABI problems" due to shared libs ['DLL Hell' in the windows world] is a MAJOR ADVANTAGE to 'getting work done' in lieu of 'patching your system'.

So, thanks for the open source "everything else", but can you **PLEASE** post the source for ANYTHING that is downloaded in binary form when I follow the recommended build instructions?

Keep in mind, Debian and Mint are 'stuck' at 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 in their package systems, and FreeBSD at 1.0.6 .  I don't know about Ubuntu, it's probably 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 as well.  Why do you think these distros are "stuck" like this?  Well, _MAYBE_ it's because of a LACK of source for some of the JAVA LIBRARIES AND TOOLS that's causing it!

I mean, SERIOUSLY, why "close source" these things?

NOTE:  if you were to provide ME the library specs, I could probably pound out independently developed competing source for these libraries that you could use for FREE, in a matter of a few DAYS.  I'd even host them on my OWN github site, just to 'get them out there'.  [and other developers out there could do the same thing, I bet]

Here's the reason:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/pull/2703
It's very unfortunate that Arduino hasn't made it a priority to get this fixed. I see people frequently having problems with that "2:1.0.5+dsfg" IDE version. They don't realize they're using some modified version of an IDE version that's years obsolete.

I have the same problem on my PC. Did you solve this problem? When i try run Arduino IDE i got this message. i tried reinstall java and IDE but nothing happens . I have Windows 7 64bit . Yesterday I updated NVIDIA drivers, since then I do not work . PLS help me .

SD card reader not initialising under 1.8.0, same program works fine on 1.6.9.

There's a bug in the SD library version 1.1.0 included with 1.8.0 that may cause that issue. Please update the SD library to 1.1.1:
  • Sketch > Include Library > Manage Libraries... > Filter search by... > "SD"
  • Scroll down until you see the entry for the SD library
  • Click the "Update" button
  • Wait for installation to complete
  • Click "Close"

@ Libang

Did you use the proper NIVIDIA drivers from the NVIDIA site or the ones Microsoft reccomended in the update schedule.

If it was the Microsoft version roll it back OR go to the NVIDIA site and download the proper ones.
The Microsoft updates for NVIDIA are nearly always broken.
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

Don't know if I am doing this right but here goes.

I downloaded IDE 1.8.1 and everything worked fine for awhile, then the Examples disappeared. I can still pull them by going to the Examples directory, but I can't get to them through the IDE.

Any ideas?

pert

Do you mean that there is no Examples item in the File menu? If so, do you have a Sketchbook item in the File menu?

Exactly the same here with 1.8.1 and 1.6.6. I've also tried to install & reinstall both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of JRE, nothing helps. Although, I've tried unpacking arduino-1.0.6-windows.zip and it works flawlessly! But it doesn't contain boards manager, so that is not an option for me. Can you confirm that 1.0.6 is working on your system? Maybe that will give developers some clues to solve this issue.

UPDATE: GeForce Hot Fix driver version 378.57 worked for me: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4378/
