I'm having trouble installing Arduino, because of the lack of Java in Ubuntu... I'm really not an expert with Linux, but would it be possible to have Arduino be stand-alone in the same way that Processing is?

Awesome!  I've been offline because I've moved, and this thread has gotten a lot of traffic.

There has been some chatter on the PD list about packaging Arduino with open-source java replacements, but I guess we need a friendly programmer for that.  Perhaps next time the summer of code comes around...

I'm going to re-install ubuntu and try again, just to see if I can do it with some of the instructions above.  However, if there is a better distro for Arduino's purposes, please let me know.

I've been trying to install Arduino on Ubuntu 6.06.  I've not been using it for long - indeed, installing Arduino was one of my aims, in order to make cheap gallery boxes - and I've come across some points that are really puzzling me.  

Firstly, the installation of the RXTX stuff into the Java directory.  Does this have to be Sun's offical Java?  Because if so, I was not getting the recommended installation directory.  Secondly, when I found what was reported to be the right directory, I found that I couldn't copy things over.  Command line text tools - as given in the installation thread - merely opened up GUI windows, which would tell me that I didn't have the right permissions within usr.

Also, svn to arduino timed out, and I ended up getting stuff via http.  However, as I was not able to install rxtx, I did not proceed any further.

This really seems like an overly complicated process - and not only that, the documentation is buried on page two of the thread!  Please can we have a page giving an offical install process?  And would it be at all possible to simplfy the install process for Linux, by using shell scripts like OSX?

Thanks Mellis, downloading now.

Which part of the SVC thing do I download?   The whole thing, or just one of the folders?

The site for downloading Arduino seems to be out of order.  I really want to take a look at Artduino, but I'm not confident about my skills to built from source - could anyone direct me to a tutorial on how to do it using xcode?

Thanks! So, I can just use the setting 'Arduino NG or older w/ Atmega168'.

Great! That's a lot cheaper than buying a new board!

I was wanting to know if I can take the old (atmega8?) chip from my three year old Arduino board and replace it with a modern chip.
