So here it is. That was my first post so I did this.

I'm going to pass a link for you to download the necessary files. It is preferable you do this with vmware workstation/player/server or a PC-BSD 8.1 RC1 fresh installation. If forum moderators consider that this link is not appropiate, please feel free to contact me and if possible, give me a list of how can I transfer files through these forums:

The instructions are into the zip bundle you may download with the link above and are a little fuzzy so read carefully, these are in english and also in spanish language made into two different readmes. If you have any inconsistencies, doubts or problems with the zip file or some of the files inside, please contact me through here. Everything is malware free smiley .

Here are some of the sites I've seen to make this possible: ---> to download the PC-BSD version I actually use, the BSD 8.1 RC1 ---> really helpful smiley

I hope this is helpful for someone who needs it or just for thinkering. smiley

Hello Everyone!!!

I'm a newbie here so I don't know yet if this is the right section to post into these forums.

I've managed to get the arduino IDE working and to be able to
program my sketchs ---more than one--- with an Arduino board with an Atmega328 on PC-BSD 8.1 RC1. Unfortunately, I'm not able to get the serial monitor working yet smiley-sad . I hope every arduino compatible board works!!

I think with a FreeBSD installation of the same version that has a Desktop Environment install should be the same. I wasn't able to make it work with the PC-BSD/FreeBSD 8.0 version, dependencies just break themselves.

Oh, and I forgot to mention something really important:

Please keep in mind, that once you install the arduino 0021 package, you should remove the unstable debian repository by going trough the software source application, so to avoid breaking the system  smiley-wink

Anyway, one you install the newest arduino package, it remains in the apt-cache so it's safe to remove the repo.

Good day everyone, long time no see...  smiley
If anybody wants to use arduino 0021 directly as a deb package into ubuntu/debian/linux mint do this:

1) go to administration>software sources:

2) go to the "Other software" tab

3) look for the "add" button and just copy and paste the line below as is:

deb experimental main

3) when you touch the "close" button, it will start to reload the repos inmediately. If an error window pops up about not finding a GPG Key, just ignore and close it, as some debian packages (sid-unstable) there, are in the bleeding edge, and some are very likely to not being authenticated too.  smiley

4) once the software sources application has exited, go to the synaptic package manager and browse for the arduino packages

5) mark the "arduino" and "arduino-core" packages which now should be labeled with 0021+dfsg-2 instead of  0018+dfsg-2, with signs of asking an update, and as i've sad before, please ignore the advice of "non authenticated package", or something like that  smiley-razz and install them.

I've done this and tested some basic PDE examples with a regular (still FTDI) arduino duemilanove, in linux mint 10, these three are actually working by now:

--> blink
--> And two firmata examples:
     a) EchoString
     b) SimpleDigitalFirmata

UNO and Mega 2560 not yet tested.

If somebody has already tried this with the arduino UNO, Mega 2560,  Duemilanove, or mega 1280 with more working examples, or anyone is having problems while doing the procedure above, please send me a feedback through here of what works and what breaks, just to let me know, I'm not a package mantainer  smiley-razz smiley-razz  I'd appreciate it.

regards.  smiley
