1  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Best microcontroller for wifi on: August 07, 2014, 07:57:15 pm
So how exactly does the standard arduino/linux hybrid work actually? I guess what I'm asking is can it be used like a regular arduino with all the same functions plus wifi?  Or are certain things that come easily on an uno more complex on the YUN due to it's unique architecture?

Try a Google search for "introduction to Arduino Yun." There are videos and blogs all over the place and they can explain it better than me.

The Yun is a lot like an Arduino Uno on the mcu side. The other side is Linux like a Raspberry Pi. The wifi is on the Linux side. The two sides communicate with the "bridge." For example you can have the Arduino take a sensor reading and write the result to the SD card on the Linux side. That reading can be manipulated, uploaded, etc. by a script/program or access via http as the Linux side runs a web server.

Try some research, you'll learn all about it quickly.

In my opinion, the Yun. You get all the advantages of an Arduino combined with a Linux system. On the Linux side you can program in languages like Python.

Depends on what exactly you want to do. 

You will get various opinions.

I'm using Ubuntu and some times I have to press on Tools them press out of the menu and them press on Tools again.
Some times I have to do it 3 or 4 times than it shows up.

Thanks! This worked.

4  Products / Arduino Yún / [SOLVED] Yun - IDE 1.5.7 installed in Linux - not seeing Yun wifi IP on: July 18, 2014, 03:39:10 pm
UPDATE: the recommendation from anjoze below resolved the issue for me.

I have just installed IDE 1.5.7  on my CentOS 6.2 machine. From this Linux machine I can ssh into the Yun and ping it.

Running the IDE and selecting Tools > Port the Yun is not visible with the network IP like it is from my Mac.

Anyone know how to resolve this?

Thanks,
Jake
5  Community / Website and Forum / Any way to change the Forum color scheme? on: July 17, 2014, 02:40:56 pm
I searched here and with Google, couldn't find a way to change the color scheme for forum.arduino.cc.

The light colors are difficult to read under bright lights. Would love to have a background other than white.

Thanks,
Jake

Thanks for the suggestion. It's always good to have options and alternatives.

Thanks, it was the Arduino IDE package I installed. There are two choices for Mac OS X:



I had installed the Java 7 package.

I just downloaded and installed the Java 6 package and problem is resolved. The column browser is back.

Well darn.

If anyone know how to fix that let me know. In the meantime I'll try some Google searches and post the answer if I find it.

Thanks,

I just upgraded IDE from 1.5.6-r2 to 1.5.7 (Java 7)  on my Mac (OS X 10.9.4), it runs and compiles sketches fine.

One change that I would like to reverse is the file open browser. The new window is just one flat view (first screen shot) the old window used a column view (seconds screen shot) which I much prefer.

Does anyone know how to get back the column view?

Thanks,
Jake

Will do. Thanks!

After reading this thread and trying  to filter out the whining parts, I'm still confused on if I should install IDE 1.5.7 on my Macs, both of which are running OS X Mavericks 10.9.4.

Will someone in the know please advise?

Thanks,

Sound good, thanks Jack!

Update:  Thanks for the tip on GroveStreams Jack. I did get uploads working to their site and they have some very nice built-in graphs.

I tried two of their tutorials complete with scripts. A Python program in the Yun's Linux system. The uploads are working but I still need to have it grab the Arduino temp readings (already being written to the SD) so that some real data is uploaded.

I also found they have an Arduino temperature tutorial that runs on an Arduino with Ethernet shield, which I have. I got that one working too and it is uploading actual temperature data in both C and F. It took some adjustments of their code to use my I2C sensor and static IP, but not too bad,.

Thanks,
Jake

Thanks Robert. I did check out the new data.sparkfun.com but it publicly shares everything you upload. I'm nervous about the public having access to the temperature and barometric pressure in my basement smiley-wink

Thanks Jack. I'll check out GroveStreams. Those are excellent charts and an interesting project you have.

I've been uploading sensor data from my Yun into a Google Drive spreadsheet via the Temboo API. Works great! Only problem is my free account is nearly exhausted for the month and I don't want to start paying for a subscription.

I'd like to find a similar service to Temboo but at no cost. I did checkout IFTTT.com, and they have a "trigger" that will upload from a URL and create a new Google Drive document file, but it creates a new file with every upload. I'm wanting to append a row to a file, preferably a spreadsheet.

If anyone knows of a open source / free service please let me know.

Thanks,
Jake
