Jerry's problem was that he knew he needed a file called avr-g++. However, he didn't know which of the packages he listed actually contained that file.

I found this on  http://www.rpmfind.net

http://fr2.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/fedora/updates/10/i386/avr-gcc-c++-4.3.3-1.fc10.i386.html

If you scroll down to the bottom of that page it says it provides avr-g++, If you need the x86-64 version they have that too.

fixed the url

I don't use Fedora anymore (moved to Ubuntu) but you could try:

Code:
rpm -q --whatprovides avr-g++

This should tell you what package contains avr-g++.

You can... but you have to modify the RXTX source code.  I did have /dev/boarduino and /dev/arduino (former was for my FTDI 232 cable plugged into a boarduino and the latter for the duemilanove).  You need to look at RXTXCommDriver.java starting from line 519 for version 2.1.9.

I had this working with arduino ver 0014 iirc and java sdk 32bit .  I then scrapped that as I wanted to get arduino/java/rxtx working completely with x86_64 and I couldn't compile rxtx.

I had looked into this myself as I wanted my FTDI 232 cable to always appear as /dev/boarduino.

I found that I could get the port to show up in Arduino's Serial menu by manually adding 'boarduino' to the list of device names in RXTXCommDriver.java (starting at line 519 for version 2.1.9).  Of course this means that I had to compile RXTX myself.

In the end I decided not to complicate my installation and went back to using precompiled RXTX files from the rxtx.org site.

On reading the INSTALL file you could try using

Code:
java -Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/tts/USB com.foo.MyApp

where  com.foo.MyApp is the arduino java app.

DISCLAIMER: I haven't tried this so have no idea if it will work for you

You'll have to at least tell us what OS you use.

I've had this happen to me on occasion.  I normally just close the IDE and re-open (and repeat as many times as it takes for the IDE to open properly). I'm currently using openjava6-jdk but I had the same problem when using sun6.  This is on kubuntu 9.04, but I had the same problem with kubuntu 8.10.

Sorry I can't help, just wanted to let you know it's not just your pc smiley

Maybe if you post your Makefile and the error messages you're getting someone here will be able to help you more.

Try using atmega328p as the MCU parameter.  That's what is specified in the boards.txt for the Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328 option.

heh,

And I missed it completely because I have a Duemilanove which doesn't have that jumper/switch.

Glad you got it working!

Sorry! I completely missed the part where you said the leds don't light up at all on your board.

As dikkie said, this may indicate a problem with your usb port.  Are you by any chance using a USB hub?  Is it powered ?

You should put your login in the dialout group. This will give you all the necessary rights over the /dev/ttyUSBx device created when plugging in your arduino.

By the way are you using a 64-bit OS ?

Hmm, try connecting just the arduino again and do a

Code:
sudo tailf /var/log/messages

Again on my PC this results in :
Code:

Maybe you'll see some error messages that will help in tracking down your problem.

Did you add any udev rules for your card reader or camera ? If so, can you just comment them out, reboot the laptop and connect up only the Arduino ?

Connect the Arduino to a usb port, open a terminal window and type

Code:
dmesg|tail

What messages do you get, if any, for the usb device?

For example, on my pc I get
Code:
[22146.520012] usb 5-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 5
[22146.722901] usb 5-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[22146.727106] ftdi_sio 5-2:1.0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
[22146.727738] ftdi_sio: Detected FT232RL
[22146.728513] usb 5-2: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB1

I know that on earlier versions of Ubuntu, a bug in the brltty package  forced the arduino to be recognized as a braille device. I think it was fixed before Ubuntu 8.10 was released but, just in case, you can remove that package (always assuming that no one using that computer needs to use a braille device).

This page http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Linux/Ubuntu says that gcj may be the problem and suggests you try re-installing.  I googled and found that others suggested running:

Code:
update-alternatives --config java
