Since I am having access issues to get to Github I would like to use this forum to thank to whomever fixed the Linux install.sh script. It no longer installs IDE 1.0.5!
Tested on 1.6.10 and 1.6.11 works great.

Thanks
Jim

If you're talking about this one:

Not sure, but I posted the problem in Github and got mixed answers.
Basically the script got stuck downloading 1.0.5  for  whatever developers  reason.
I seldom post to them anymore, they are in their own world, and I do not appreciate their insults either. 
People are much nicer here and really trying to help.

Oh, Hi Vaclav. Welcome back to the forum.

I think the reason that apt-get installs 1.0.5(actually it's "2:1.0.5+dfsg2-4", which is a modified version) is due to a licensing issue that prevents current versions of the Arduino IDE from being included in the Linux package manager.

Just in case someone else comes across this post and needs more information, here's the relevant GitHub issue report: https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/5253

Here's the thing that you never were able to understand. The GitHub issue tracker is to report bugs with the Arduino IDE. The forum is where you want to go for support questions as well as discussion, etc. If you post legitimate bug reports on the GitHub issue tracker you will get a positive response. I say this from years of experience during which I've never been insulted once. That's not to say I've always agreed with the developers but they're in charge so they make the final decisions and that's the best way.

Well I'm glad you're having another try at being a member of this forum and I hope it will go better than the last time.

What about arduino-linux-setup.sh that comes with arduino-1.8.7-linux64.tar.xy (and I suspect the linux 32 version as well)? Is this a replacement for install.sh or an additional installation script? The instructions at the web page https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Linux doesn't mention this script at all.
