I recently installed 'crouton' on my chromebook in the hope I could install the Arduino IDE v1.5.7.
I was wrong apparently you can't, I started a topic on the crouton forum/issues page and was advised to come here.
Apparently, and i quote from the crouton forum (https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton/issues/980
) :-"It looks like you are trying to install x86 packages (32- or 64-bit) on an ARM-based Chromebook. The Arduino IDE is written in Java, but some components are built for the native architecture.
You need to find an Arduino 1.5.7 package for ARM architecture (there is a package for 1.5.6 on Debian experimental that might work: https://packages.debian.org/experimental/arduino), or possibly build it yourself. You might want to ask on Arduino forums: they should be able to help."
I was hoping somebody on here would be able to help me with this. My aim is to use the Arduino Due on the chromebook, I can install V1.0 of the IDE but this obviously doesn't have support for the DUE.
