I have tried installing The New arduino ide on my debian install and the install.sh works great but when it comes down to clicking the icon and the IDE opening when I click it does nothing
I still cant get this to run any ideas ?
Forget the install script and try this. Decompress the Arduino package in your home directory. Open a terminal and cd into the Arduino directory. At the command prompt type "./arduino", without the quotes, press enter and the IDE should open. If it does not open and run at least you should see some useful error messages. You can place a link to that script on your desktop but DO NOT move the script!
