Topic: Tools menu still slow (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I am new to Arduino and I am developing a project which will use bluetooth to communicate with my computer (the one I am developing the Arduino on).
In the Arduino ide the tools menus are very slow.
I have searched this forum and tried the suggestion of removing the bluetooth which frees the menus but I need it for my project.
I have installed the java rxtxSerial-2.2_fixed_2009-03-17.rar but this does not make much difference.
Surely this must be a common problem and I am surprised it still exists as some posts about it go back to 2009.
Help please.


what OS are you using?
Be more specific please
Arduino Mega 2560
Arduino Nano
Arduino Duemilanove
MAC OS Montain Lion
Raspberry PI Model B


Hi Hugo, I am using windows 7 and ARDUINO 1.0.


I had the same problem. On December 09, 2011, 05:50:08 PM someone asked approximately the same question ("Arduino 0022 and 1.0 super slow").
The answer down at the bottom worked for me.

the answer ist "rxtxSerial.dll"
I'm change to version 2009/03/17 (97kb) and 0022, 0023 and 1.0 starts fast and no problems with Menu Tools.
