I'm on the current version of Ubuntu and managed to get the IDE and ftdi drivers installed.  But, when you use apt-get to install Arduino, it installs it in a locked folder into which I cannot copy files.  How do I add my 3rd party libraries?  (wishield, sensiron, rtc, etc)

Hi,
libraries go into your sketchbook directory.

On my machine the sketchbook folder is in /home/wayoda/sketchbook

Create a new directory on ypour machine
/home/<your user name>/sketchbook/libraries
and install the libs into this directory

You should at least read this page here
http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Environment

Perfect.  That's what I was both looking and hoping for ;)
