LOL, Numpty moment, you open a new tab with the drop down arrow menu thingy top right on the tab bar.

Interesting enough I also checked the funy failures as listed previously above and java errors on 1.0.5 and they do exactly the same.  This could do with a tidy up at some point. Maybe the IDE should guide the numpty user (Like me) a little better or fail in a more informative way.

Looks like the 64 bit ide can not cope with files that are not .pde or .ino

Any attempt to have a .h open in the ide is failing.

Attempting to open it form the File/New will not create a .h

Attempting to open int from File/Open will not see a .h

Attempting to add an existing .h file from Sketch/add fails with a bunch of java errors and results in the .h that was already created being deleted.

Attempting to add a non existent .h file from Sketch/Add fails with a bunch of java errors

Common guys this is trivial stuff, we should be able to support opening and editing a .h file in 64 bit.

Maybe we should be dropping claims to support 64 bit until we can get something that approximates what does work for 32 bit.

Given lack of response here and failings of 64 bit support I am beginning to feel, that 64 bit is being ignored. I may be better off without the Arduino IDE completely. It is a bit of a chew but I usually like it.

Same problems for nightly and 1.5.2 release builds.

This seems to be fixed by the instruction in this post:-
4  Products / Arduino Due / Ubuntu 64 Bossac Broken on: July 06, 2013, 04:13:38 am

Apologies in advance if this has been sorted already or elsewhere. I googled around and played with the problem a while before posting up here.

I am running Ubuntu LTS (Quantal) 64 Bit and the current downloads for working with the Due will not upload to my board. (either nightly or the beta versions, both fail the same)

3.2.0-49-generic #75-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 18 17:39:32 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

32 bit will not run on 64 bit full stop. (Not really too surprising, who would want to run 32 on 64 bit)

32 bit works just fine on a 32 bit install of Ubuntu LTS.

The problem appears to be that bossac is compiled against a different libc run time.

Bossac fails with the following error:-

./bossac: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Code compiles fine but will not upload as bossac fails.

All the rest of my 64 bit apps are running fine and there are no runtime problems with them. As is local code I compile for other apps I am writing..

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

Yes I tried this it was OK. It seems to be whenever I try to work with IO for some reason. The analogue routines do the same.

I will try with a newer version of Arduino when the next is released and see if it helps.

Hi Guys,

This is probably going to be a very dumb question, Sorry I am new.

I have been experimenting with some code for an app where I wanted 6 PWM channels of custom waveforms.

I seem to have blundered into what may be a bug but because I am a touch new here i am not sure.

I have defined all six (168) PWM channels as output and am currently running a pair of for loops in loop() to give six channels of triangle waveform.

It works great. I realy want to be a able to rewrite the PWM values  for all six channels from pre calculated Look up tables.

LUT's are pretty straight forward so no problems there.

I set up a blank ISR using the overflow for timer 2, and the avr interrupt.h method.

If I call other subroutines or mess with variables from my ISR it works fine.

When I try and call digitalWrite() from the ISR to toggle a debug pin it crashes.

Is this usual ??

Thanks in advance

Hi Guys

I am new here so if I am asking something already done to death I apologise because despite looking I couldn't find an obvious reference to the subject.

Is anyone aware of or interested in a simple Flow Diagram based IDE for educational purposes ??

I have used such for teaching/introducing kids to PIC based microcontrolers but would like to do similar with Arduino/Atmel based microcontrolers.

The code and IDE as it stands is great but a little too complex for introductory/school kids level.

I have hacked/tweaked the stk500v2 bootloader source in arduino ide v22 to compile for the 1284P at 20Mhz used as a Sanguino Upgrade.

I have the diffs to contribute if these are of interest who should I email them to ??
