Title: Tools menu still slow
Post by: TrekRider on May 15, 2012, 09:47 am
I am new to Arduino and I am developing a project which will use bluetooth to communicate with my computer (the one I am developing the Arduino on).
In the Arduino ide the tools menus are very slow.
I have searched this forum and tried the suggestion of removing the bluetooth which frees the menus but I need it for my project.
I have installed the java rxtxSerial-2.2_fixed_2009-03-17.rar but this does not make much difference.
Surely this must be a common problem and I am surprised it still exists as some posts about it go back to 2009.
Help please.

Hi,
I had the same problem. On December 09, 2011, 05:50:08 PM someone asked approximately the same question ("Arduino 0022 and 1.0 super slow").
The answer down at the bottom worked for me.

the answer ist "rxtxSerial.dll"
I'm change to version 2009/03/17 (97kb) and 0022, 0023 and 1.0 starts fast and no problems with Menu Tools.
