Greetings Arduino board, I have run into a problem with the arduino IDE and I can find no mention of it on the forum.
I want to program some ATTiny85 chips that I have. I downloaded the core files from here https://code.google.com/p/arduino-tiny/. I install them, following the instruction in the included readme file. To be clear, I create the directory, /home/username/sketchbook/harware, and copy the directory, tiny, into it. I then rename the file Prospective Boards.txt to Boards.txt.
But when I open the arduino IDE and click tools --> board nothing has changed, I do not see any ATTiny boards listed. I have tried copying the tiny directory into the /usr/share/arduino/hardware/ directory, no dice. I have tried this with both versions available on the site I linked to.
I'm running arduino 1.0.5 on 64 bit Linux, Fedora 19 to be specific I installed from the IDE from the repo.
Thanks in advance
