I found out that installing (something other than the Arduino IDE) requires to use an option on sudo.So try this in front of the apt-get:Code: [Select]sudo -i
Hello, I just upgrade to 1.8.9 from 1.8.8. When I launch 1.8.9 it loads to Preparing Boards and disappears.I looked into the debug.exe when 1.8.9 runs java it does not finish. Does anyone know why?
Do you mean arduino_debug.exe?Please post the full text of the output when you run arduino_debug.exe. You need to run it from cmd.
As you can see I when back to 1.8.8. What happens is: when I execute Arduino.exe the window comes up. It start to initializing packages it finishes then start preparing boards then the window goes away.
Let me be sure I understand: You were originally having a problem after you updated to Arduino IDE 1.8.9 from a working Arduino IDE 1.8.8 installation, but now you went back to using Arduino IDE 1.8.8 and are still having the same problem. Is that correct?If you create a folder named portable under C:\Users\nicol\arduino-1.8.8, does the problem still occur?
First off Thank You for helping me! I created C:\Users\nicol\portable\arduino-1.8.8 and I still have ths same problem.
Try using the hourly build of the Arduino IDE to check whether this is caused by a bug that has been fixed by the Arduino developers after the 1.8.9 release:https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software#hourly
