Thank you, Horace!

I guess the PC uses an USB 1.1., right?

On what Arduino do you connect it, please?

Have you tried it?  What happened.?

What version of Ubuntu are you using?

My guess is that it should be just fine - the IDE is just a Java program. There is very little to installing it. Download the version you want. Copy it to the directory you want. Extract the ZIP and enjoy.

The IDE will run on practically anything and, with a powerhouse like that, you can't go wrong. If you are having problems, it can hardly be your computer, unless it is actually faulty. Otherwise, you might look to the installation.
