I'm running KUBUNTU 10.10 amd64 (KDE version of UBUNTU).  I went to the kubuntu's kpackagekit and downloaded the one file w/o Java (arduino-core 0018) and it launched the arduino ide automatically.   tested the "UNO" board successfully. Performed several uploads then closed the ide program, but couldn't figure out how to re-launch it.  Finally downloaded the Java front end/ accompanied program from kpackage and couldn't select the correct serial/USB port.  Had only one choice.  I then tried it on my windows system and it worked fine.  What file do I need to launch the arduino-core 0018 and where is it located.  

(this linux thing has been a steep learning curve!)

mrtaylor  -  Thank you!  The following link you posted got me up an working with the Arduino UNO board on my "KUBUNTU 10.10" System.

The instructions above were perfect with the exception of copying the file from root/usr/lib/jbi/librrxtxserial.so      

I used Dolphin (equiv explorer) to copy the file over).  

I copied the following file

file:///usr/lib/jni/librxtxI2C-2.2pre1.so

per instructions for amd-64 at the website below.

...now I need to find instructions for making a desktop shortcut to ./arduino  ;(

Created shortcut to "Arduino" on desktop by opening "Dolphin" to where my ./arduino  executable was located.  exe.  /home/arduino/arduino-0022/

Then dragged it to desktop.
