i use Arduino with Arch Linux (Manjaro 21.0.7 XXFCE).
Yesterday, everything worked fine.
This morning, i had strange outputs in the Serial.Monitor (theres another Post of me in the forum).
And now, since a few hours, i am not able to upload Sketches on my ESP8266.
When i start uploading, it say:
Connect...... _______ ...... _______ ..... ._______
And thats it.
But uploading on an Arduino Nano works.
So the problem seems to be the ESP.
But i have tried out several ESPs and they all don't work (and worked yesterday).
So i removed the ESP from the Board Library and reinstalled -> Same problem.
And then is deciced to set up Manjaro completely new and downloaded a fresh installation of arduino (by Manjaro Package Manager) and then; same problem again ;-(
I'm absolutely helpless, does anybody have a suggestion what could be the problem?

Make sure you have the correct port for the ESP8266 selected from the Arduino IDE's
Tools > Port menu.
If you don’t know which port it is, you can find it like this:
Unplug your Arduino board from the computer.
Tools > Port from the Arduino IDE's menus. Note the ports, if any, listed in the menu.
Tools menu. The ports list is only updated when the Tools menu is re-opened, so this step is essential. Plug your Arduino board into the computer.
Tools > Port from the Arduino IDE's menus. - The new port listed in the menu is your Arduino board.
i have the correct port selected and usw Arduino now for a few month.
SInce yesterday the port worked well. And if i connect an Arduino Nano for example it works.
Only with an ESP8266 it doesnt work.
First i thought, that the ESP is damaged so i tried another one - same fault.
So i tested it on my windows machine --> everything works (also with the ESP).
So i installed Manjaro Linux completely fresh and also Arduino.
Added the board url and installed the ESP via board manager and : Again it doesnt work...
Any further suggestions?
I have just encountered criticism in the German section of the forum because I asked the same question in the German and English forums at the same time (and unfortunately used a different user here in the English forum for the post I had created for my son...in the german forum its the user "basementmedia").
Here is the same post in ther german forum:
Ich gehe immer davon aus, dass es keine böse Absicht gibt. Mein Vorschlag ist immer noch, die gleiche Frage im englischen Teil dieses Forums auf Englisch zu posten (mit Google Translate, genau wie ich es jetzt tue) und zu erwähnen, dass Sie bereits in der deutschen Sektion gepostet haben, dies jedoch zu keiner Lösung geführt hat (bei Bedarf einen Link zu diesem Thread setzen)
Es gibt einige sehr sachkundige Linux-Benutzer, die wahrscheinlich keinen deutschen Beitrag lesen werden.
I just wanted to point this out and hope that no one here is angry with me for it
If you have any tips on how I could solve my problem, I would be happy to hear from you.
thanx to a user of the german forum section i have a temporary solution:
Settings prior to uploading the sketch:
Boardtype: Generic ESP8266
Flash size: 4MB
Reset method: " no dtr (aka ck)"
Then press Flash button (or Ground D3 (GPIO0) on Wemos D1 mini)
Press Reset shortly
Then release Flash
Press upload in the IDE
Then the Upload works.
I also found out, that the reason for this bug seems to be related to the current Linux Kernel:
Some Users report, that downgrading the kernel solves the problem.
But in my case also downgrading did not do the trick.
