I've been through the arduino.cc guides but no luck. I have added all the necessary packages following the directions here: http://www.pluggy.me.uk/arduino-ubuntu/
When I click on the program and hit 'Run' nothing happens. If I click on 'Run in Terminal' the terminal will open for a split second and then close down. I've tried installing the program into my home folder and desktop, neither works. Under the 'open with' options I've tried gedit, wine windows program loader, and autorun prompt.
Let me know if you have any ideas.
