Topic: Arduino 022 and OSC Lion (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic



Before I upgraded to OSX Lion on my MacBook Pro I had no problems with the Arduino IDE uploading sketches to my Arduino Uno. After upgrading, every time I try to load a sketch (any sketch) the whole arduino.app blows off. Here is a portion of the error message:

Has anyone else seen this behavior and more importantly have a fix for it. I'm in the middle of a new Arduino project and I have to get this working.

Any help would be appreciated.


I solved this myself. The problem was a mismatch in the RXTX library which I found by looking for upload errors in the system log with the Console.app. I copied the files from the Arduino 022 install

librxtxSerial.jnilib and RXTXComm.jar

over the files in /Library/Java/Extensions and my upload problems went away.


Thank you for posting your actual fix and not just "oh I fixed it."  ;)
