Topic: Unable to add library (Read 356 times) previous topic - next topic

So I'm still a relative noob to Arduino but have been programming on the Mac for quite a while.

I'm trying to add a custom library to my Arduino project and just cannot get it to add. I'm following the tutorial:
http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/LibraryTutorial
And even downloading that Morse library and it just will not show in the menu.
I created and saved a test sketch, downloaded the Morse, Sow Sketch folder, added a "libraries" folder and put Morse in it. Quit and reopen the software, Sketch - Import Library, nothing new. Any tips?

Running Arduino 1.0 on Mac OS 10.7.3. Tested in a new user, same problem.

Did you extract the Morse folder from the zip file, then copy the Morse folder to the Libraries folder?

My sketch folder is Documents -> Arduino.  Then I have Libraries, so the the full path is Documents -> Arduino -> Libraries -> Morse.

Is that what yours looks like?

It does now, and it works. When the tutorial said to go to the sketch folder, I figured Show Sketch Folder would get me to the right place. It actually dropped me into the sketch for the particular project.

Many thanks for the help.
