I have not been following this discussion but that made me giggle
thank you, I can't remember how I once installed Arduino IDE on my Pi or if I altered a prior installation, I once followed some instructions I found in the web (which I do not remember exactly).Anyway, there is no hidden folder visible.Is there meanwhile a working apt-get install version?or just these commands I found here in this forum?wget http://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xztar -x -f arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xzwill that install automatically also the hidden folder?if yes, can it be simply deleted, or do I have to change entries in preferences as well?After that I assume that I'll just have to copy my old portable folde into the new 1.8.8 folder like for Windows, correct?
what is funny about that?
Because by definition a hidden folder is not visible. There may well be a way to make it visible but then, of course, it is not hidden is it ?
Is there meanwhile a working apt-get install version?
wget http://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xztar -x -f arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xzwill that install automatically also the hidden folder?
After that I assume that I'll just have to copy my old portable folde into the new 1.8.8 folder like for Windows, correct?
having installed IDE 1.8.8., the IDE always starts with a new (empty) file, not with the latest working file as before (1.8.5).How can I make 1.8.8 to automatically load the latest opened file again?
Is there an issue with IDE 1.8.9? I downloaded and installed it a few days ago. Today I tried to use it but everything returns a "Error compiling for Arduino/Genuino Uno" and Board Info says it is a Arduino/Genuino Uno and it is on port Com6. This is using a Windows 7 desktop. Even the ArduinoISP example sketch returns that same error. I am unable to do anything with it. Did I miss something? I will re download it and reinstall it but this threw me since the previous version I had installed did not have a problem with these boards.Thank you.
