Switched to Ubuntu flavor of Debian, but need to maintain arduino based 3D printers...

But the interface for Arduino IDE is so different it might as well be a completely different program!

Can't even connect Serial Monitor because the max Baud rate available is 115000, my boards need 250000.

It could be missing library...but I have no "Library Manager".

I'm guessing you used "apt install arduino" to install the Arduino IDE. This gives you a horribly outdated and unofficial version of the Arduino IDE. Please remove that thing and download the modern official Arduino IDE from the download page of this website:
https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

Why? Linux sucks so horridly bad. Especially Ubuntu...

And the horribly prone to virus windows is so much better? The only benefit i have ever had from windows was when i was a gamer...

"download the modern official Arduino IDE from the download page"

Tried that first but it would not run. I installed it and then had to shutdown and when i booted back ip the next day it had un-installed...

I will try it again...And let you know

You don't actually need to install. Just extract the downloaded file to a convenient location and then run the arduino script that's in the extracted folder.

Well, that's interesting. I thought Windows was limited to 115200 anyway.

As far as the libraries are concerned, you can just put them where the other libraries are. I 'm sure that can be done just as easily with Linux.

I think this Thread would be more suitable in Bar Sport.

I have been using Linux for years without any problems. Back when I switched I simply could not afford the cost of upgrading Windows - and it did (and still does the odd time I use it) take forever to start up and shut down.

I don't use the Arduino IDE. I do all my program editing with Geany and I use Mincom for my terminal and I use the Arduino command-line IDE for compiling an uploading. I have written a short Python program to automate it and add some capability that does not exist in the IDE.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

@siegemaster's question definitely doesn't belong in Bar Sport (though "Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer" is also not the most appropriate location for this topic). If the thread gets further hijacked with arguments about which OS is best, then we might need to split it and move the pointless stuff to Bar Sport.

I use Arduino IDE on both Linux Mint and Windows 10.

This post indicates two assertions that do not make any sense.
